Moses Maimonides was the greatest Jewish philosopher of the Middle Ages.  In his famous book, “Guide of the Perplexed”, said that Negroes are between men and apes (Volume 2, pages 618-619):
 
    The Negroes found in the remote South, and those who resemble them from among them that are with us in these climes. The status of those is like that of irrational animals. To my mind they do not have the rank of men, but have among the beings a rank lower than the rank of man but higher than the rank of apes. For they have the external shape and lineaments of a man and a faculty of discernment that is superior to that of the apes.
