In the 15th century, when Europe was experiencing a decline in population and prosperity, Christian attitudes toward Jewish doctors worsened. This was reflected in preaching and in Church decrees against Christian use of Jewish physicians. Though this may have influenced some Christians to avoid Jewish doctors, the attack was not massive and they continued to practice their profession."@en ;
