Classical period[ edit ] Early animosity towards Jews[ edit ] Louis H. Feldman argues that "we must take issue with the communis sensus that the pagan writers are predominantly anti-Semitic".

Feldman concedes that after Manetho "the picture usually painted is one of universal and virulent anti-Judaism ". The first clear examples of anti-Jewish sentiment can be traced back to Alexandria in the 3rd century BCE.

Manethoan Egyptian priest and historian of that time, wrote scathingly of the Jews and his themes are repeated in the works of ChaeremonLysimachusPoseidoniusApollonius Molonand in Apion and Tacitus. Hecataeus of Abderaa Greek historian of the early third century BCE, wrote that Moses "in remembrance of the exile of his people, instituted for them a misanthropic and inhospitable way of life".

Manetho wrote that the Jews were expelled Egyptian lepers who had been taught by Moses "not to adore the gods. Agatharchides of Cnidus wrote about the "ridiculous practices" of the Jews and of the "absurdity of their Law", and how Ptolemy Lagus was able to invade Jerusalem in BC because its inhabitants were observing the Sabbath.

Statements exhibiting prejudice towards Jews and their religion can also be found in the works of a few pagan Greek and Roman writers, [16] but the earliest occurrence of antisemitism has been the subject of debate among scholars, largely because different writers use different definitions of antisemitism.

The terms " religious antisemitism " and "anti-Judaism" are sometimes used to refer to animosity towards Judaism as a religion rather than to Jews defined as an ethnic or racial group. Roman Empire[ edit ] Relations between the Jews in Judea and the occupying Roman Empire were antagonistic from the very start and resulted in several rebellions.

It has been argued that European antisemitism has its roots in Roman policy. According to the Roman historian SuetoniusTiberius tried to suppress all foreign religions.

In the case of Jews, he sent young Jewish men, under the pretence of military service, to provinces noted for their unhealthy climate.

He dismissed all other Jews from the city, under threat of life slavery for non-compliance. Four thousand were sent to Sardinia but more, who were unwilling to become soldiers, were punished.

Cassius Dio reports that Tiberius banished most of the Jews, who had been attempting to convert Romans to their religion. The Jerusalem Talmud relates that, following Bar Kokhba's revolt — CEthe Romans destroyed very many Jews, "killing until their horses were submerged in blood to their nostrils".

Some accommodation, in fact, was later made with Judaism, and the Jews of the Diaspora had privileges that others did not. Unlike other subjects of the Roman Empire, they had the right to maintain their religion and were not expected to accommodate themselves to local customs.

And although Hadrian outlawed circumcision as a mutilation normally visited on people unable to consent, he later exempted the Jews. Antisemitism in the New Testament Although the majority of the New Testament was written, ostensibly, by Jews who became followers of Jesusthere are a number of passages in the New Testament that some see as antisemitic, or that have been used for antisemitic purposes, including: You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father's desires.

He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. In an essay regarding antisemitism, biblical scholar Amy-Jill Levine argues that this passage has caused more Jewish suffering throughout history than any other in the New Testament.

As your fathers did, so do you. Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered, you who received the law as delivered by angels and did not keep it.

Drawing from the Jewish prophet Jeremiah Observance of the earlier covenant traditionally characterizes Judaism. This New Testament teaching, and later variations to it, are part of what is called supersessionism.

However, the early Jewish followers of Jesus continued to practice circumcision and observe dietary lawswhich is why the failure to observe these laws by the first Gentile Christians became a matter of controversy and dispute some years after Jesus' death Acts Stephen is executed by stoning.

However, the relationship between the followers of the new religion and the Jews of Medina later became bitter.
