Object | Accession Number: 2016.184.287

Lithograph by Konstantin Guise (1810-1858) after a drawing by Hieronymus Hess (1799-1850), ca. 1823. It depicts a monk giving a sermon to an assembly of Jews who were forced to listen to a Christian sermon every Saturday. These mandatory gatherings were held at the church of Sant'Angelo in Pescharia in Rome from the 17th to the 19th century. The engraving is one of more than 900 items in the Katz Ehrenthal Collection of antisemitic artifacts and visual materials.
