The 2017 Corcoran Chair Conference: The Gospel of John and Jewish-Christian Relations
The Gospel of John is one of the most beloved books of the Christian canon, loved and admired for its sublime theology and poetic language. But the Gospel is also the source of potent anti-Jewish ideas, including the association of the Jews with the devil, that persist to this very day. By focusing on such diverse areas as art, film, music and liturgy, on thinkers such as Luther and Bultmann, on Protestant, Catholic as well as Orthodox Christianity, and, of course, on the Fourth Gospel itself, this conference will consider the role that the Gospel has played and continues to play in Jewish-Christian relations.
Monday, April 3 at 9:00am to 3:30pm
