Chapter Summary

One of the more prominent aspects of medieval Passion texts was their anti-Semitism. An in-depth analysis of the development of the attitudes of the anti-Jewish passages is found in the Thesoro de la passion. Jews often were denied human status because of their "inability" to understand Christ's purpose, and were instead classified as animals, most frequently dogs. The purpose of the discussion of Judaism in the Primer del Crestià and to a lesser extent in the De vita Christi, is to prove that Christianity is the only true religion. The study of the conversos and their world has seen many shifts in basic theoretical approach within the past century. The overarching theme throughout the Thesoro de la passion was against religious hypocrisy in general, and Li's criticisms were directed at many different groups of "false" believers, including but certainly not limited to the Jews.
