Painting of Jews Murdering Christian Children to Go on Display

By: JTA

A controversial 18-century painting depicting the ritual murder of Christian children by Jews, will be available to viewers in the cathedral of Sandomierz, Poland. The painting, “Mord Rytualny” or “Ritual Murder,” was painted by Charles de Prevot,

A plaque will be mounted next to the painting, which will inform viewers that the Jews did not actually commit ritual murder, because their faith prohibits it.

The painting has been mounted on the wall of the cathedral for many years, but has been hidden behind a red curtain because of its offensive nature.

The painting will go on display again on Thursday, as the Catholic Church marks its international Day of Judaism.

In the eighteenth century, Charles de Prevot painted a series of paintings, “Martyrologium Romanum,” depicting the martyrdom of Christians. These paintings show brutal and realistic scenes of tortured and murdered Christians by pagans. The painting depicting the ritual murder has been covered since 2006.

    Lets see what the pope says about this on his "day of Judaism."

  2. Basha Kline says:

    I would like to think that this painting is alongside the paintings showing the abuse and killing of Jews over the millenia, the burning of Jews in synagogues, the vile and unforgivable acts of depravity extended to Jews through the holocaust and I would also expect a viewing of the catholic ministers themselves abusing their own choir boys, as well as being instrumental, up until the 1960's of designing "castratos" for their cathedral's high-pitched choirboy tonal gratification..

  3. Basha Kline says:

    I would like to think this painting is alongside the paintings of christians killing, abusing Jews through history, burning Jews in synagogues, pogroms, and I would also expect to see paintings of christians abusing choir boys, and even, up to the 1960s being instrumental in producing "castratos" for the gratification of high-pitched singing within the church. Oh, I also expect the visual impact within the gallery of all of the christian humanitarians aiding the starving in the camps…!

  4. Aryeh Sax says:

    I do not think you will ever see any paintings or photos of Christian abuse of Jews on his "day of Judaism". They can speak of past events as if someone else did it. After all they are not true Christians. I guess not even the Popes in history who ordered vile acts.

  5. Yechiel Baum says:

    excellent! Show it to the philistine children to instill fear in them.

  6. what does the pope mean by a international day of Judaism? what is up his sleeve?

  7. Linda says:

    Have any of the people posting actually read the article. Sientje and Basham obviously have not. Pathetic bottom feeders.
