Speaker information

Professor Guy Stroumsa, University of Oxford/Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Guy G. Stroumsa is Professor of the Study of the Abrahamic Religions, Fellow of Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford and Martin Buber Professor of Comparative Religion, Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research has dealt with Gnosticism, Manichaeism, Early Christianity, and religious contacts in the Roman world of late antiquity, as well as with the history of the modern study of religion.

Judaism, Christianity and Islam are highly different religious systems, which have informed histories and cultures far apart from one another. And yet, these three religions clearly possess some obvious family resemblances, both genetic and structural. This lecture will reflect on the multifaceted challenge of studying and teaching Judaism, Chrisitanity and Islam together, from a comparative perspective.

The reception starts at 6:15pm in the Terrace Restaurant (Wilkins Building), and will be followed by the lecture at 6:45pm in the Chadwick lecture theatre (Chadwick Building).
