Recent Catholic Theologies of Jews and Judaism and the Challenge of Theological Dialogue
A virtual symposium to be hosted by the Saint Leo University Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies
May 9 -11, 2021
CCJS has invited a dozen scholars to come together in a spirit of mutual friendship and scholarly inquiry to discuss topics identified by the Vatican as important for reflection in its 2015 document “The Gifts and the Calling of God are Irrevocable: A Reflection on Theological Questions Pertaining to Catholic-Jewish Relations on the Occasion of the 50th Anniversary of Nostra Aetate.”
Each invited scholar will present a paper, and CCJS intends to collect the papers into an edited volume that will be available to the scholarly community and the interested public. This is the first invitation-only academic symposium sponsored by CCJS and we are excited to have assembled such an accomplished group of scholars.
