Johannes Pfefferkorn (ca. 1469-1522 or 1523) converted to Christianity in 1505 and became an active anti-Jewish agitator. Pfefferkorn actively preached against the Jews, attempted to destroy copies of the Talmud, and engaged in a long running pamphleteering battle with humanist Johann Reuchlin. His mission had support from many sources, including the Franciscan and Dominican orders as well as the University of Cologne and several German princes.
