Chapter Summary

This index of the book The Roots of Pagan Anti-Semitism in the Ancient World presents a list of quotations. The book highlights that racial distinctions were never used in ancient days, at least not in the form of special external or cultural characteristics being ascribed to the Jewish race as such to prove its inferiority to other races. Although it is now practically a general assumption that the modern concept of race did not exist in ancient days, this does not preclude the repeated use of the word "race" in the translation of ancient literary passages relating to the Jews, nor the occurrence of the concept "race" in all sorts of discussions on anti-Semitism.

Keywords: anti-Semitism; Jewish race
