1 HEP -The initials of "Hierosolyma est perdita"
or, Jerusalem is lost! in Latin. During the Crusades, Jews were seen as even worse
infidels than Muslims and were murdered in droves by crusaders on their way to Palestine.
Jews were blamed for the capture of the Holy Sepulchre by the Muslims; therefore, the
saying, "HEP!" is a battle-cry of Jew haters (even in the 1800s).
2 Auto-de-fé -"act of faith" involving the torture, and murder (by burning) of enemies of the Christian church, featuring hymns, and general attractions.
3 Pogrom -an organized and usually officially instigated massacre (of Jews in Eastern Europe).
4 Black Death (Persecutions) -During the Black Death or Plague, i.e., Bubonic Plague, Christians accused Jews of poisoning, curses, witchcraft, etc., because generally Jews were not as ravaged by the plague as the Christians were. This was largely due to Jewish laws concerning cleanliness, and the general filthiness of non-Jews of the time period. According to Christians, the "evil" Jews had to be involved.
5 Host Desecration -The Host, a communion wafer that "became Christ" during communion (transubstantiation), it was claimed, was sometimes "kidnapped" and mistreated by Jews. Therefore, Christ was being attacked, etc., by Jews.
6 Mufti -an expounder of Islamic law.
7 Blood Libel -a libel spread against Jews that accused them of using the blood of Christian children for a Passover sacrifice.
