Antisemitism and art: a brief commentary on “Hugh of Lincoln” folktale

Abner Costantino da Silva


Jews have been accused of blood rituals for much of English history. Unjust public trials and social imagery gave rise to many a folk story on that theme. Thus, this article aims to achieve the following goals: 1) comment on the main literary aspects of “Hugh of Lincoln” folktale; 2) reveal its hung artistic status between the antisemitic pamphlet and the mere fiction. The bibliographical research and the work of analysis aimed to contribute to the Literary Studies of folktales in order to broaden its field of vision beyond the dictates of the diachronic approach.
