This did not stop Christians borrowing money from Jews, however, nor did it stop them becoming resentful over being required to pay back with interest the money that they had borrowed. Resentment in turn led to racial intolerance and fantasies and rumours about Jews and Jewish practices. A classic example is the lurid and implausible horror story told in The Canterbury Tales by the prioress, a story that had been in circulation in various forms for over a hundred years by the time Chaucer got hold of it.

Jewish languages in Europe For at least three millennia Jews have written (and spoken for liturgical purposes) their ancient traditional Semitic language, Biblical Hebrew. Modern Hebrew is a th-century Israeli reconstruction of this language, adapted to modern conditions. In their diaspora over two millennia, Jews adopted the languages of the communities among whom they lived. Sephardim in Iberia adopted Castilian, Catalan, and Portuguese, creating from Castilian Spanish a recognizably distinct Jewish dialect called Ladino or Judeo-Spanish.

Balcon and Balkin, for example, are Ashkenazic family names from a pet form of the Yiddish word beyle ‘beautiful’, which was widely used in Jewish communities as a female given name. Kalman () and Rivlin belong here too. Until the end of the th century, most Ashkenazic Jews did not have hereditary family names. In Hebrew documents, individuals were generally known by a given name and that of their father: X ben Y ‘X, son of Y’ or X bat Y ‘X, daughter of Y’. This pattern was not uniquely Ashkenazic: for more than , years, it was traditional for Jews of all origins.
