Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion

contrib. by Sergi︠e︡ĭ Nilus

Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion (also known as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion) is an antisemitic forgery purporting to be a record of meetings of Jews plotting world domination.

Bibliographic notes

The first known publication of Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion was in a Russian newspaper in 1903. An expanded version, also in Russian, appeared as part of a book by Sergei Nilus in 1905. That version is the basis of most publications and translations since then. It is not certain whether Nilus wrote the first version of the Protocols, or expanded on someone else's text. Some of the content of the Protocols was recycled without attribution from older works, such as Maurice Joly's "Dialogue aux Enfers Entre Machiavel et Montesquieu".
