Jews and Christians Debate, Dispute and Dialogue in the Middle Ages

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

Many people believe that Jews engaged in a critique of Christianity during the Middle Ages only because they were forced to, or because they were repulsing a Christian missionary threat – but is that the full story?

Throughout the period, Jews and Christians devoted much effort to debating the merits of their respective religions, disputing the stances of their opponents. For both sides, these debates sharpened their theological commitments and drew borders between the two religions.

Meanwhile, lesser known “friendlier” interactions saw Jews and Christians learn from each other as neighbors who had much in common.

On January 9, join the National Library of Israel for:
“Jews and Christians Debate, Dispute and Dialogue in the Middle Ages”
With Prof. Daniel J. Lasker, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev

8 pm Israel / 7 pm CET / 6 pm UK / 1 pm EST

The lecture is part of the National Library of Israel’s latest series, “Jews and Christians through the Centuries: Communities in Conflict and Contact”.
