Comparative study

How is the comparative scholarship on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam possible? What are its presuppositions, and what does it entail? How can the history of religions help interfaith understanding? These are some of the questions this lecture addresses.

Lecture by Guy Stroumsa, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Oxford University; response by Jon Levenson, Harvard Divinity School; opening remarks by Charles Stang, Harvard Divinity School, and Adam Afterman, Tel-Aviv University.
