Anthony Bale

in The Jews in Medieval Britain: Historical, Literary and Archaeological Perspectives, 2003, 129-144

Discusses the fictionalisation of medieval Anglo-Jewry by examining blood libel allegations and their use in hagiography (such as Thomas of Monmouth's life of Wiliam of Norwich) and historiography (such as Matthew Paris's Cronica Majora) as well as the portrayal of Jews in bestiaries.
