golem According to the legend of  XVIth century, the rabbi from Prag Jehuda Low Ben Bezalel is said to have given life to a clay natural size statue while putting to him in the mouth a piece of paper on which the Hebrew word for “God” was registered. He called the statue "Golem", which means in Hebrew "mass without the shape". The creature was destroyed, because instead of protecting the Jews from Prague, it attacked them.
