Two theologians will examine the Catholic and Jewish perpectives on the resurrection of the dead during the 15th annual Nostra Aetate Dialogue on Thursday, Nov. 1, at 6 p.m. at the McNally Amphitheatre on Lincoln Center campus.
The discussion, “A Shared Hope: Catholic and Jewish Perspectives on Life After Death,” will feature Neil Gillman, Ph.D., the Aaron Rabinowitz and Simon H. Rifkind Professor of Jewish Philosophy, at the Jewish Theological Seminary, and John Thiel, Ph.D., professor of religious studies at Fairfield University. John W. Stealy, S.T.D., director emeritus of Fordham’s Archbishop Hughes Institute on Religion and Culture, will serve as moderator.
The event is co-sponsored by the Archbishop Hughes Institute on Religion and Culture and the Jewish Community Center in Manhattan. Admission is free and open to the public. The Nostra Aetate Dialogue can be traced to the Nostra Aetate (In Our Time) document, a declaration by the Second Vatican Council stressing the importance of relationships between the church and non-Christian religions. The Archbishop Hughes Institute on Religion and Culture was established in 1995 to foster Catholic-Jewish dialogue and in addition to the Nostra Aetate Dialogue, hosts the annual Russo Lecture.
