i The following note refers to vol. III. p. 139. 1. 33.

Dr MOSHEIM does not pretend to determine whether these reports relative to the barbarity of the Jews were true or false; but it seems more than probable, that they were insidiously forged out of hatred against that unfortunate people. This will appear still more evidently to have been the case, when we consider that in the xiiith cene tury, the Popes GREGORY IX. and INNOCENT IV. published declarations, which were designed to destroy the effect of several calumnies that had been invented and dispersed to the disadvantage of the Jews; and in the xivth century we find the Roa man pontifs BENEDICT XII. and CLEMENT VI. giving the same proofs of their equity towards an injured people. We find in history circular lettere of the dukes of Milan and Venice, and imperjal edicts of FREDERIC III. and CHARLES V. to the same purpose ; and all these circumstances render it highly credible, that the reports mentioned by Dr MOSHEIM are not founded on sufficient evi, dence.
