The text under scrutiny is located in the Extractiones de Talmud, a Latin translation of hundreds of passages from the Babylonian Talmud, which was prepared during the 1240s in Paris as part of the legal proceedings against the Talmud. While its author does not include the Toledot Yeshu in his translation, he clearly refers to the title of the work and comments on its content, placing it in the wider context of alleged Jewish anti-Christian blasphemies.
