The Meeting of Pope John XXIII and Prof. Jules Isaac

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 5 giugno 2020

Webinar – Thursday, 11 June 2020 11:00 (Philadelphia) / 17:00 (Rome) via ZOOM. The Cardinal Bea Centre for Judaic Studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University together with the Institute for Jewish-Catholic Relations at Saint Joseph’s University, Philadelphia, is pleased to present this webinar programme to conclude our events calendar for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Sixty years ago in Rome, the French educator and historian, Prof. Jules Isaac had a private audience with Pope John XXIII. The Jewish scholar presented a summary of his research into the Christian “teaching of contempt” for Jews and Judaism that had prevailed for centuries. He asked that the pope establish a subcommittee to study the subject in preparation for the upcoming Second Vatican Council. The pope replied, “That is what I have been thinking from the beginning of this meeting!” Their brief conversation led to the composition of the conciliar declaration Nostra Aetate and the birth of a new relationship between Jews and Catholics that has now unfolded for six decades. On this special occasion, we will have the opportunity to hear Dr Mary C. Boys, SNJM, Skinner and McAlpin Professor of Practical Theology at Union Theological Seminary, New York, and Rabbi Dr Irving Greenberg who served for 23 years as a Founding President of CLAL: The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership and for 10 years as Founding President of the Jewish Life Network/ Steinhardt Foundation. Both will offer first-hand accounts of the impact of this encounter. To participate, pre‑register to receive the web address through the link at the bottom of the SJU page:
