Murder on Purim? That's the charge of Socrates Scholasticus, whose lone account of an alleged Purim celebration that got out of hand in the year 415. Although the validity of the accusation is highly questionable, the incident at Inmestar had a larger impact centuries later as the myth of ritual murder gained popularity in medieval Europe.
