A landmark history of the antisemitic blood libel myth—how it took root in Europe, spread with the invention of the printing press, and persists today. Based on sources in eight countries and ten languages, Blood Libel captures the long shadow of a pernicious myth.

Magda Teter is Professor of History and Shvidler Chair in Judaic Studies at Fordham University. In addition to Blood Libel: On the Trail of an Antisemitic Myth (Winner of the 2021 American Historical Association George L. Mosse Book Prize), she is the author of Sinners on Trial: Jews and Sacrilege after the Reformation and Jews and Heretics in Catholic Poland. She is currently a fellow of the American Academy for Jewish Research.
