"How much he is hostile to the Jews, but he doesn’t take on it as fiercely as I do" (Luther on Münster)
Religiously motivated anti-Jewish thought patterns accompanied Christianity from the beginning (anti-Judaism). At the beginning of the traditional hostility towards Jews was the conflict-laden process of detachment of the early Christians from Judaism. Jews have been socially disadvantaged and marginalized since the 4th century. From around the 13th century, the animal metaphor »Judensau« is documented as a frequent pictorial motif in anti-Jewish Christian art. In the middle of the 14th century, Jews were blamed for the plague as well poisoners. In the 15./16. In the 19th century, anti-Judaism had reached a peak. On the occasion of the festival year "1700 Years of Jewish Life in Germany", the tour focuses on the topic of "Anti-Judaism in the Early Modern Age" and goes into the attitude of Luther and Münster.
