‘Constantine’s Sword: The Church and the Jews’


This book and documentary should make it clear that there is absolutely no room for Western moral superiority towards Muslims given the bloodstained history of Christian antisemitism towards the Jews, which the author contends LED DIRECTLY TO THE HOLOCAUST.

Author James Carroll “maps the two-thousand-year course of the Church’s battle against Judaism…the central tragedy of Western civilization, its fault lines reaching deep into our culture…Carroll begins his landmark project by describing contemporary Catholic remembrances of the Holocaust and the Church’s intolerable legacy of hostility towards Jews. He then surveys Catholic anti-Judaism beginning with the New Testament and proceeding through the early Church, the Crusades, the Inquisition, the Enlightenment, and World War II, before concluding with “A Call for Vatican III,” a Church council that would make meaningful repentance for an entrenched tradition of hatred…Part history, part memoir, this hefty tome by novelist Carroll (Mortal Friends, etc.) traces the record of anti-Semitism and anti-Judaism in the Catholic Church, suggesting that centuries of animus culminated in the Holocaust.”

Available on Amazon.com, where the first chapter of the book can be downloaded for free.
