Davis, F. B. (2003). The Jew and Deicide: The Origin of an Archetype. Lanham, MD: University Press of America.
Davis, a psychoanalyst specializing in Child and Adult Psychiatry, addresses the question of how antisemitism arose from the experience and writings of the early church. Although his premise is defensible, he is not conversant with the most basic issues in study of the synoptic gospels and his analysis suffers greatly from that lack. He is on more solid ground in discussing the psychological theories of Rudolf Loewenstein and Leon Festinger, but in the end his conclusions are disappointing.
