Revilo P. Oliver quote about the Middle Ages

Another great hoax is the endless whining by the Jews that they were “persecuted” during the Middle Ages, when the Church gave them a virtual monopoly of usury, sorcery, and international trade; when they spun financial webs about kings and noblemen and most rulers were attended by skilled Jewish physicians, always spies and potentially executioners; when the Jews exercised such political, intellectual, and economic power that, as Bernard S. Bachrach has shown in his Early Medieval Jewish Policy in Western Europe (University of Minnesota, 1977), out of the 98 rulers whose policies he examines in detail, 88 (including Charlemagne) had to pursue pro-Jewish policies, while the ten who attempted to oppose the aliens in their domains went down to failure in one way or another; when the Jews could usually count on royal or ecclesiastical protection whenever their depredations excited local resentment so strong that it became violent; when even the famous and belated expulsion of Jews from England and Spain overlooked those who thought it worth while to have themselves sprinkled with holy water; and when the Church itself was a great ladder by which marranos climbed to power and wealth.

  1. By foisting upon the once proud and powerful Roman Empire the suicidal Christian religion, [the Jews] destroyed Rome. We all know that a thousand years of the Dark Ages followed the collapse of Rome, during which the White Race wallowed in ignorance, poverty and superstition. When the White Race did finally extricate itself (partially) from this perversion of the mind, (during the Renaissance) the Jew was there in his midst, still in control of the White Man’s finances, his government, and his religion.

    Christianity was Jewish in its instigation and continues to be Jewish in its control from the central domination of the Pope himself. The Popes generally helped to protect the Jews from an outraged populace. When the Black Death slew half the population of Europe in two years, the Jews suffered worse than the rest, for the desperate populace accused them of having caused the pestilence by poisoning the wells and commenced to slay them all over Europe. There is much evidence that the Jews did, in fact, drop infected people in wells and other sources of water in order to spread the plague and thereby kill off more of the White population. Pope Clement VI denounced these accusations against the Jews as lies, trying to point out that the plague had been just as deadly in lands where no Jews lived, although this was not easily proved or disproved. He further strongly threatened to excommunicate such people as took part in these massacres, calling them fanatics. Many [Jews] were received by Pope Alexander VI as refugees in Rome.


    The Khazars, a rapacious Turkish tribe had built an empire between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea and extending northward into the middle of what now is Russia. The Khazars converted to Judaism under King Bulanin the 8th century A.D. Little did the Russians realize the virulence of the plague that they had assumed to assimilate.

    The Jews in Frankfurt monopolized moneylending and finance in the Middle Ages and even today Frankfurt is one of the world’s more important Jewish financial centers. Jews were present in the area before the German state of Prussia was even formed. When Frederick William became the Grand Elector, Jewish power expanded rapidly. They became “Court Jews,” money-lendermint-masters, army purveyors and the aristocracy of the community.

    Jews entered Spain as early as the 6th century B.C., coming in with the Phoenician traders. From 612 A.D. a relentless warfare ensued between the natives and the Jews, marked by sporadic outbreaks and massacres. The Jews helped the Arabs invade Spain in 711 by betrayals from within. For several centuries the Jews prospered under the Arabs and Spain became the foremost Jewish center of that time. In the Christian part of Spain Jews became tax collectors and “Court Jews,” and soon controlled both the government and the economy. The infestation became so flagrant (20-25% of the population were Jews) and so oppressive the Spaniards reacted.

    In the Christian part of Spain a wave of massacres against the Jews swept the country in 1391, especially in Cordova, Granada, Segovia and Seville, and many of them became baptized Marranos, openly professing Christianity, but remaining secret Jews at heart, loyal to the Jewish race and religion. Along with the real Jews, they now controlled the church, the government and the economy, and dissolution, turmoil and rot ensued. Marranos and the Jews were perpetually betraying the Christians in favor of the Moors. Further massacres of the Jews broke out sporadically in many cities.

    Jews settled in Pinsk [Poland] in the 16th century and soon monopolized the grain trade.

    Control of gold into the hands of the Jewish Shylocks was strongly aided and abetted by the Christian church itself. During the Middle Ages the Catholic church forbade Christians in engaging in the loan business, calling it “usury.” Since lending money was usurious, and usury was a sin, Christians were shut out, leaving the field wide open to the usurious and pecuniary Jew. Added to this was the stupid Christian doctrine that “money is the root of all evil.”



  2. Even in the Middle Ages the Jews did not do badly for themselves, and they certainly had little cause for complaint, except when their excesses brought the wrath of their hosts down on their heads. The Jews established an early stranglehold on the commerce of Europe, monopolizing especially foreign trade. Even after the establishment of the merchant guilds in the 12th century freed most local trade from the Jews’ control, they remained well entrenched in the import-export business.

    For five centuries Europe staggered along under the burden of a number of problems: battling Moors, Turks, and Mongols on its southern and eastern frontiers and often well inside those frontiers; yielding up the last of its spiritual and mental freedom and settling into a straitjacket of superstition and orthodoxy, as the Christian Church tightened its grip on all of Europe; succumbing to the Black Death by the tens of millions, as this dread scourge swept over the land in the 14th century and killed every fourth European. In addition to these problems imported into Europe from Asia, the Europeans were no slouches at generating problems of their own, and territorial and dynastic warfare continued to take their toll throughout the Middle Ages.

    As Europe’s population, commerce, industry, and wealth grew during the Middle Ages, so did the numbers of Jews everywhere and with them the inevitable friction. Everyone has heard of the wholesale expulsions of Jews which occurred in virtually every country of Europe during the Middle Ages: from England in 1290, from Germany in 1298, from France in 1306, from Lithuania in 1395, from Austria in 1421, from Spain in 1492, from Portugal in 1497, and so on. What many do not realize, however, is that the conflict between Jew and Gentile was not confined to these major upheavals on a national scale. Hardly a year passed in which the Jews were not massacred or expelled from some town or province by an exasperated citizenry. The national expulsions merely climaxed in each case a rising popular discontent punctuated by numerous local disturbances.

    The Jews were often able to ameliorate their situations greatly during the Middle Ages by establishing special relationships with Gentile rulers. They served as financial advisers and tax collectors for the princes of the realm and of the Church, always ready with rich bribes to secure the protection of their patrons when the hard-pressed common folk began agitating against them. They made themselves so useful to some rulers, in fact, that they were favored above Christian subjects in the laws and decrees of those rulers.

    The Frankish emperor Charlemagne was one who was notorious for the favors and privileges he bestowed on the Jews, and his successor followed his example. It is especially instructive to read what the noted Jewish historian Heinrich Graetz has to say on this matter in his encyclopedic work, History of the Jews (v. III, ch.6 of the 1894 English edition, issued by the Jewish Publication Society of America).

    The successor of Charles the Great, the generous but weak Louis [ruled 814-840], in spite of his religious inclination, which obtained for him the name of “the Pious,” showed extraordinary favor to the Jews. He took them under his special protection…. They enjoyed the right of settling in any part of the kingdom. In spite of numerous decrees to the contrary, they were not only allowed to employ Christian workmen, but they might even import slaves. The clergy were forbidden to baptize the slaves of Jews in order to enable them to regain their freedom. Out of regard for them the market day was changed from the Sabbath day to Sunday. The Jews were freed from the punishment of scourging [which was inflicted on Gentiles], and had the jurisdiction over Jewish offenders in their own hands…. They were allowed to carry on their trades without let or hindrance, but they had to pay a tax to the [emperor’s] treasury, and to render account periodically of their income. Jews also farmed the taxes, and obtained through this privilege a certain power over the Christians, although this was distinctly contrary to the provisions of canonic law.

    An officer (Magister Judaeorum) was appointed whose duty it was to watch over the rights of the Jews, and not permit them to be encroached upon…. One is almost tempted to believe that the remarkable favor shown to the Jews by the pious emperor was mainly due to commercial motives. The international commerce which Charlemagne had established, and which the counselors of Louis wished to develop, was mostly in the hands of Jews, because they could more easily enter into commercial relations with their brethren in other lands as they were not hampered by military service. [The Jews and the clergy were exempted from military duty.] Graetz goes on to boast that Jews were feted in Louis’s court, were admired for their cleverness and wealth by all his courtiers, and, in general, exerted more influence on the styles and mores of European society than in any other era before the l7th century, when the Puritans introduced a new period of Jew-worship.

    Throughout the Middle Ages the Jews of Europe mingled their Semitic blood with that of the Whites on whom they lived, despite absolute bans everywhere on marriage between Christian and Jew. The Jews absorbed White blood through their notorious fondness for White slave girls, whose offspring were often raised as Jews. To a much greater extent the Whites absorbed Jewish blood, through the folly, encouraged by the Church, of regarding any baptized Jew as White. After the 12th century, fortunately, the mingling was minimized by the confinement of the Jews to ghettos.

    The greatest influence on the Jewish racial constitution during the Middle Ages was not White intermixture, however. The conversion of the Khazars, a Hunnic tribe from Central Asia, to Judaism in the eighth century changed substantially the racial basis of the Jewish populations of Eastern Europe.

    The relatively greater opportunities for exploitation of the Gentiles in the East, not to mention the strong presence of the Khazar-descended Jews there, led to a gradual concentration of Europe’s Jews in Poland and Russia during the Middle Ages. By the latter part of the l8th century, half the world’s Jews were living in Poland. Their power became so great that many medieval Polish coins, minted during periods when Jews were in charge not only of collecting the taxes, but also of administering the treasury itself, bore inscriptions in Hebrew.



    1. While church officials in other European countries were rounding up and burning all the pre-Christian books they could lay their hands on during the Middle Ages, Icelandic scholars were busy writing down the sagas which still existed only in oral form and transcribing, annotating, and expanding those which had been put into writing earlier.



  3. In addition to the number of prominent people who, during the Middle Ages, became converted to Judaism, and who were probably responsible for introducing non-Semitic blood into Jewish stocks — I refer to such persons as Alfonso VI’s physician, who went over to Judaism in 1106; Joseph Halorqui who, as a convert to Judaism, became a member of the Pope’s court; and Bodo, a member of an old Allemanic family, who under Louis the Pious of France became converted to Judaism and married a Jewess in Saragossa — we know that there was much intermarriage between Jews and Christians in Spain. We also know that, despite stringent laws against mixed marriages with Jews in Hungary, the archbishop of that country reported in 1229 “that many Jews were illegally living with Christian wives, and that conversions [to Judaism] by thousands were taking place”, 1 and we know that even before Constantine raised Christianity to power, colonies of mixed Jews and Gentiles were probably forming in the neighbourhood of Cologne and the upper Rhine. Professor Graetz says: “The chronicle has it that the original Jews of the Rhine region were the descendants of the legions who had participated in the destruction of the Temple. The Vangioni had selected the pretty women out of the multitude of Jewish captives, and had brought them to their quarters on the shores of the Rhine and the Main. The children from this mixture of Jewish and Germanic blood were raised by their mothers in the Jewish faith . . . and were the founders of the Jewish communities between Worms and Mayence.” 2

    Further west, in Gaul, where in the fifth century A.D. the Jews lived on very friendly terms with the inhabitants of the country, “marriages between Jews and Christians were not altogether rare”, 3 whilst through the latter half of the fourth to the end of the fifth century A.D., when the Jews were the slave-traders of Europe, 4 and not only had thousands of female and non-Semitic slaves pass through their hands, but also may themselves have possessed and cohabited with many of them, some non-Semitic blood was probably mingled with that of the European Jew.

    The decree issued by Constantine, six months before his death, prohibiting Jews from possessing Christian slaves, was obviously directed against the danger, at that time probably well known.

    Constantius, the son and successor of Constantine, also promulgated laws in which the Jews were “forbidden under pain of death from possessing Christian slaves or marrying Christian women”, and these laws were obviously calculated to meet what was considered a widespread abuse.

    Many ecclesiastical bodies were involved in heavy debts to the Jews. Some idea of the indebtedness to one Jew alone — Aaron of Leeds — on the part of the ecclesiastical bodies may be gathered from Hyamson, who tells us that the owners of the Abbey of St. Albans, Lincoln Minster, Peterborough Cathedral, and nine Cistercian abbeys, owed him the equivalent of £250,000 of modern money at his death.

    Jews secured their safety by receiving baptism. Both Hyamson and Dr. Cunningham (to mention only these two) argue in this way, though the former does say: “The bulk of the Jews of England preferred exile to apostasy. As in the case of Spain, however, there can be little doubt that a minority, weaker in will and constancy, chose baptism rather than the terrors of banishment, and as Christians, more or less sincere, remained behind and became gradually lost in the general population” (p. 116).



    1. With the constant crippling exactions, consisting of annates, tithes, and the sale of dispensations, absolutions and indulgences, all of which not only incensed the secular rulers, but also outraged the peasantry by whose hard toil the necessary wealth was supplied; discontent and hostility to the Church was an increasing source of revolt throughout the later Middle Ages. For, whilst the fabulous cost of the central administration in Rome and the lavish expenditure of the leading prelates everywhere, with their constant demands on every national purse, dismayed the civil rulers, what most embittered the peasantry was the Spartan meanness of their own compared with the luxuries and fat-living displayed under their very eyes by the local functionaries of the Church, and the relatively affluent leisure enjoyed by a frequently concubinary priesthood, whilst they themselves, their wives and children, were forced to set the example in self-denial and austerity.
