"Times were dangerous for the Jews of old Prague, they were even accused of using the blood of Christian babies in their Passover bread. In the dark streets at night the threat of violence was always present and their leader Rabbi Loeb needed help against the cunning of his people's greatest enemy, the monk Thaddeus. So he fashioned out of mud a Golem, a creature of great strength who would perform impossible tasks, but whose very existence could spell disaster if the Rabbi lost control over him"--Back cover.
