Pope Clement VIII Issues Papal Bull Forbidding Reading of Talmud by Jews

Pope Clement VIII issues the papal bull Cum Haebraeorum malitia forbidding Jews from reading the Talmud. The Talmud is popular target of hatred by the Catholic hierarchy because they believe it contains instructions for the Jews to attack and hate Christianity.

These beliefs about the content of the Talmud will often be used as excuses for persecuting Jews, much like the infamous Protocols of the Elders of Zion will be used in the 20th century.
