    Abstract: From the 5th century, Jews were falsely accused of murdering Christian boys to use their blood in the performance of religious rituals. In some cases, the alleged victims of human sacrifice became venerated as Christian martyrs and became objects of local cults and veneration; although they were never canonized, they were confirmed by the cult devoted to them "ab immemorial" (the giving the assent to a formal beati-fication). The attitude of the Catholic Church towards these accusations and the cults venerating children supposedly killed by Jews has varied over time. The Papacy generally opposed them, although it had problems in enforcing its opposition. The official liturgical cult of them has now been abandoned in accor-dance with the post-conciliar provisions and the feasts were removed from the Roman Martyrology.

    Keywords: the cult of the victims, the ritual murders, the alleged martyrs, the Catholic Church, Jews.
