Christian guilt and the study of Judaism - Lecture by Dr Johnathan Kearney

Date: Thursday May 17th, 2018 Lecture starts: 10.45 a.m. Tea/Coffee : 11.30 a.m. Questions : 12.00 noon.

Do recent paradigm shifts in the study of Christian origins towards a focus on an alleged Jewish ‘inheritance’ actually tell us anything about either Judaism or Christianity. Might these shifts instead be seen as an attempt to redirect attention from Christian complicity in the development of anti Semitism? An attempt to assuage Christian guilt? Or another attempt to appropriates Judaism? The talk and delivery of this paper will attempt to analyse and problematize these developments.
