This chapter sets out the wider background to instances of antisemitism in Europe in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. It describes how histories of the subject have explained the origins and development of Christian Social antisemitism in Vienna, then it outlines how this work engages with and challenges these histories. It begins the process of demonstrating how antisemitism came to be used in the long term as a weapon against liberalism and liberal views, and against modernism and the modern world. It begins to explain how antisemitism in Vienna came to be viewed as a ‘respectable’ and acceptable stance. It starts to examine who propagated it and how they did so, and why its proponents initially came from the lower bourgeoise and the lower clergy.
