This essay assesses the goals of the Jewish book pogrom of 1509-1510 and reconstructs the ways the Jewish community of Frankfurt, the city council of Frankfurt, Maximilian I's gradual development of a new approach to Jewish policy, and Johannes Reuchlin's defense of Jewish legal rights combined to undermine the unusual effort to end the practice of Judaism in the Holy Roman Empire.
