The first time they burned the Talmud,was
on the main square of Paris, in the year 1244.
R. Yechiel of Paris had a talmid (student) Nicholas Dunin,
who became a Meshumad , he accused the Talmud of being
against the Notzrim (Christians)and Oso Haish.
R. Yechiel of Paris and R. Moshe miKutzi (Smag) tried to defend the
Talmud but to no success.
One of their defences was that when the Gemoro discusses the Oso
Ha'ish it is not necessarily the Christian one. There were at least two
different Meshichei Sheker in the Gemoro.
After the burning of the Talmud, R. Yechiel of Paris moved to Akko .
Hence the first of the Ba’alei Tosfos in Eretz Yisroel.
R.Hillel Virona* writes the Talmud was burnt on the exact same square they
burned the Moreh Nevuchim. The Rambam,s opponents finally realized
they wronged the Rambam.
*Talmid of R. Yonah who was originally opponent of the Rambam.
