This chapter describes the thirteen studies included in The Ritual Murder Legends: The History of Blood Libel against Jews, which were prepared for the conference organized by the Centre for Research into Antisemitism at the Technical University of Berlin in October 1990. They cover the vast area of historical, sociological, psychological, and legal issues connected to the ‘blood libel’, from the Middle Ages up to the beginning of the twentieth century. The authors are mainly concerned with developments in the German lands, but they also discuss how the relevant issues were influenced by the situation of Jews in Great Britain, France, and Spain. The Jews of Poland receive only marginal treatment, and it is sometimes inaccurate. The authors' conclusion is that the history of blood libel in Poland is relatively unknown and should be further investigated.
