Short description

Antisemitism in Scandinavia is often understood as a relatively new phenomenon and there has been little research to trace its roots back to before the modern era. In this project, we aim to identify antisemitic themes that can be found in medieval texts and art and follow them through to the modern era to see how they develop through time until today.
