Speaker information

Guy Stroumsa, Professor, University of Oxford, GUY G. STROUMSA is Professor of the Study of the Abrahamic Religions and Fellow of Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford and Martin Buber Professor Emeritus of Comparative Religion at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research deals with the religious history of late antiquity in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Near East. He has a particular interest in early Christian thought, Gnosticism, Manichaeism, and the relationship between Jews and Christians.

Is modern antisemitism a version of age-old anti-Jewish feeling, or a phenomenon of its own? Professor Stroumsa will trace their roots and evolution, and discuss their differences and similarities.
