The Trial of the Talmud: Paris, 1240 (John Friedman, Jean Connell Hoff, Robert Chazan) presents primary texts (offered together in English for the first time) related to the "Trial of the Talmud" that took place in Europe during the Middle Ages. During the trial, rabbis were called upon to defend the Talmud against the claim that it was a harmful text and thus "intolerable in a Christian society."
