FROM THE PREFACE TO THE FIRST THREE EDITIONS. Every year, especially about Easter-time, there is a revival of the accusation that the Jews, or, if not all the Jews, certain Jews, make use of the blood of Christians for purposes of ritual. The charge .is bound to be often repeated, so long as the replies to it are limited to the contradiction and exposure of the falsity of the reasons brought forward. . . . . . That is wh yI discuss the accusation in connection with the signiftcance of blood as reganls religious belief, and particularly as regards the superstitions of humanity at large. I expressed my opinion on the question, whether the J ews use Christian blood for ri tuai purposes, as far back as 1882, the year of the Tisza-Eszlar trial, in the Evangelische Kirchen-Zeitung (12th August, No. 32) . . . . . . . Further investigations (apropos of the Bernstein case, v.p. 144 sq.) convinced me more than two years ago, that, whilst I was correct in my negative answer to the charge, it was possible, and even necessary, to base it upon a deeper foundation. I am now compelled to publish the results of my fresh researches by the renewal of the controv:ersy about ritual murder in consequence of the assassination of an eight year old girl in Corfu during the night of the 12th to 13th April this year (v. p. 213 sq.) ... I have made it my special business to let the facts speak for themselves, and have ...... almost confined myself to quoting, without alteration, the actual statements in the sources of information I have utilised: so anybody who wishes can arrive at an unbiassed judgment for himself. The facts I have had to bring forward are, for the . greater part, of a very loathsome kind. But, in order to cure the terrible disease of superstition, we must fust of all know the disease. . . . My exhortation to our Christian priesthood, to our whole Christian people is: Up and gird yourself for battle, not only against unbelief, but also against superstition! When German Christendom, free from superstition, stands firm in true belief in the crucifi.ed Saviour, risen from the dead, the question, so far as concems Germany, whether Christian blood is ritually employed by Jews, will be exploded and futile, for more reasons than one. 2 July, 1891.
