Dark Mirror: The Medieval Origins of Anti-Jewish …

In compelling and accessible prose, Lipton shows how images we may take as perennial have a rich and contested history. She wears her deep erudition lightly, but it still comes through in this powerful, effectively illustrated account. The Washington Post

Rewardingly detailed . . . This study of medieval anti-Jewish iconography argues that its proliferation not only reflected the spread of intolerance but in fact actively generated anti-Semitic attitudes. The New Yorker

Dark Mirror is a spectacular achievement. No one interested in the troubled history of the relations of Jews and Christians in medieval Europe can afford to ignore it. Every page is a revelation. William Chester Jordan, author of Unceasing Strife, Unending Fear: Jacques de Thrines and the Freedom of the Church in the Age of the Last Capetians

In this challenging, original, and eloquent study, Sara Lipton takes on our received notion of the place of the Jew in Christian art and culture–and reshapes modern perceptions of medieval history and medieval art. Jeffrey F. Hamburger, author of Script as Image

An illuminating, subtle, yet eminently readable book about artistic images and their curious afterlife. There are few other medievalists who possess simultaneously the artistic eye and deep historical understanding to undertake this pathbreaking research. Dark Mirror is a major study of art, society and history that will change how medieval anti-Judaism is to be explained and related to its modern descendants. Paul Freedman, author of Images of the Medieval Peasant

In this thoughtful, lucid book Sara Lipton challenges recent accounts of the politics of difference, proposing a history that is at once complex and nuanced. She convincingly embraces theology, philosophy, gender, the family and the city–and above all makes a powerful, balanced and engaging case for the way that art itself constituted discourse. Paul Binski, author of Becket’s Crown:Art and Imagination in Gothic England, 1170-1300

Among its many accomplishments, Dark Mirror dispels some widely held ideas about how Christians saw and understood Jews in the Middle Ages. With patience and wisdom Sara Lipton unravels an intriguing and fateful history of fascination and disgust. This is a book for anyone interested in the Middle Ages, in the Christian imagination, and in the experiences of the Jews. Miri Rubin, author of Mother of God: a History of the Virgin Mary

Compellingly, thoughtfully, Sara Lipton demonstrates that for medieval Europeans, the Dark Mirror’ of Jewry invariably reflected not a distinctive minority group, but society at large. As cartoonist Walt Kelly famously declared, We have met the enemy, and he is us.’ Lipton will let none of us escape our common humanity. Ingrid Rowland, author of Giordano Bruno: Philosopher/Heretic

In this remarkable book, Lipton proposes that representations of Jews in high medieval art were not motivated by ingrained anti-Jewish sentiments. Instead, the figure of the Jew emerged as a device to excite Christian devotion. Dark Mirror’s arresting claim is that the origins of anti-Jewish attitudes are to be found in Christianity’s complex relationship with itself. Daniel Lord Smail, author of On Deep History and the Brain

Maxine Waters: I Threaten Trump Supporters ‘All the Time’

Last week while receiving an award from the Stonewall Young Democratic Club of Los Angeles, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) said she threatened Trump supporters “all the time” while defending her controversial comments earlier in the year urging supporters to confront members of the Trump administration. Waters said, “There are those who said we lacked civility when I got up and talked about the presidents cabinet and I said if you see them anywhere, if you see them at a restaurant, if you see them at a department store or even at a gasoline station just tell them ‘you are are not welcome here or anywhere,’ And so it frightened a lot of people. And of course the lying president said I threaten his constituents. I did not threaten his constituents and supporters. I do that all the time, but I didn’t do that that time.” She added, “What bothered me so much was, they tried to frame that as violence. That’s not violence. As a matter of fact I said the poster child for violence is the president of the United States. He’s the one who threatens. Don’t forget at his rallies, when he said go ahead and beat them up, I’ll take
