An outgrowth of the shattering Emden-Eybescheutz polemical crises: An examination of the amulets produced by Jonathan Eyebescheutz said to contain distinct Sabbatian characteristics. By decree of the Council of Four Lands, this polemic was banned and most all copies were incinerated upon publication. See Carmilly-Weinberger, pp. 86-92
