Title : Madame Eglentyne, Geoffrey Chaucer and the Problem of Medieval Anti-Semitism [The author argues that Chaucer’s Prioress’s Tale is unquestionably antisemitic in nature. Although many literary critics have tried to defend Chaucer against antisemitism by pointing to his highly ironic portrayal of the tale’s narrator (the Prioress), Chaucer ultimately reflects the biases of his contemporaries.

Contributor(s):
Title : Madame Eglentyne in Her Day and in Ours: Anti-Semitism in "The Prioress’s Tale" and a Modern Parallel [The author assesses twentieth-century scholarship on Chaucer’s Prioress and the controversy over whether the character is anti-Semitic (she tells a story about a little boy killed by Jews). Although one might see the Prioress as anti-Semitic according to our modern post-Holocaust perspective, it is ultimately unknowable whether Chaucer shared her views. The author finds a modern parallel to “The Prioress’s Tale” in the story of a shrine in Rinn, Austria (dedicated to a boy supposedly killed by Jewish merchants in 1462); its cult following endured through the late twentieth-century.
