Commentary: Notes from Snow 1977: "T. is forced to conclude that Alfonso is an intolerant anti-semite in the CSM and in real life; he cites cantigas 2, 426, 415, 419, 27, 305, 5, 264, 149, 312, 109, 85, 108, 12, 6, 34, 286, 4, 25, 89, 107, and 208 to support this claim. There is not the least mention of such considerations as received traditions involving Jews, the guilt traditionally associated with them in the Crucifixion, their having been stereotyped by scores of preceding generations, and their general utility as ready-made antagonists of Christian beliefs. What we need is fact to support the fiction and to aid in separating the art from the life (when that is capable of being clearly perceived). Readers should eye this article with reservations."
