Jews are expelled from Brussels, Belgium, after being accused of the theft and desecration of the Holy Sacrament in a Catholic Church. First, though, six are burned at the stake once they are tortured enough to confess to the crimes. The property of all the Jews is confiscated.

Because Christians believe that these communion wafers bled real blood after being stabbed by the Jews, the wafers will be venerated for the next several centuries. This is one of many instances where an alleged miracle involving communion wafers is connected to some misdeed by Jews.

The accusations against the Jews is used to justify why the miracle occurred.
