A review of the Jewish literature shows a rather great concern with the problem of inter-ethnic tensions. If the situation of the Jew in the Middle Ages was in some respects a unique one, the question may be raised whether the respective folk tales are not unique also, at least in some respects. The author discusses the issue and deals with a product of the medieval traditional culture, the sacred tale.
