Jewish History

By order of the Pope, the Talmud was burned in Venice on the 13th and 14th of MarCheshvan, 1553 (Minchah Belulah, Deuteronomy 33:2). The reason given was that the Talmud contained statements heretical to the Christian faith. Venice boasted many famous Hebrew printing houses, including that of Daniel Bomberg, an Italian gentile who published the Talmud there during the years 1519–1523.
