In the 18th-century, the Jews of Poland were repeatedly the target of false accusations of ritual murder. To silence their accusers, they turned to the papal authority in Rome. This document, disproves the false allegation, based upon (among other sources) Maimonides Guide of the Perplexed (Pt. 3, Chap. 46) as translated by Johannes Buxtorf (p. 5). Roth has reproduced a later report from the year 1759 by Cardinal Ganganelli (later Pope Clement XIV) that would likewise clear the Jews of the charge being levelled against them by Polish Anti-semites.
