The boy's mother, a poor widow, goes house to house, inquiring of the Jews the whereabouts of her  son. Yet everyone lies to her, saying they know nothing of the child. Then Jesus himself puts in her  thoughts the direction to the alley where the child had been murdered and the pit where his body  was cast away. As the widow nears the place, the child's voice breaks forth singing  O Alma  Redemptoris.  The Christian people gather around in astonishment. The provost of the city is called;  upon seeing the child, he bids all the Jews to be fettered, bound, and confined. Later, they are drawn  by wild horses and hanged.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
