This article contains a chronology of the Jewish persecution of Christians.

Persecution by century

2nd century

  • 132 — Judaea Province, Roman Empire. Rabbi Akiva ben Joseph claims that Simon Bar Kokhba is the "messiah". Christians reject this claim and refuse to join in the Bar Kokhba terror campaign against the Roman Empire. As a result the Jews murdered many Christians. Bar Kochba ordered Christians to be executed if they would not deny and curse Jesus Christ. According to Justin Martyr, "The Jews were behind all the persecutions of the Christians. They wandered through the country everywhere hating and undermining the Christian faith."

6th century

8th century

  • 711 — Kingdom of the Visigoths. Jews as well as converted Berbers from North Africa play essential role in the advancement of Arab imperialism into the Iberian Peninsula. After the Muslims conquered the cities of Elvira, Seville and Cordoba, they were left under a Jewish-led garrison, while the armies pursued the natives. Malaga could not be garrisoned by invaders because the city was Jew-free.[2]
  • 712 — Toledo, Kingdom of the Visigoths. Jewish fifth column opens the gates of Toledo to the invading armies of the Umayyad Caliphate, while Christian defenders of the capital city were occupied in celebrating a procession, on Palm Sunday at San Locadia church.[2]
