Much has been written about the fate of the Jews in the two thousand years of Christian history and about the portrayal of Judaism and the Jews by Christian theologians and people of the Church. But The Jews in Christian Art is one of the first works to consider art as a serious source of historical knowledge about the Jews and the ideological constructs developed around them by Christian thinkers and artists. Just as the statuary and glass windows of the cathedrals of the Middle Ages constituted the "Bible of the Poor", so this "picture atlas" demonstrates in a way no text can how Jews were seen through Christian eyes.
