To mark the 50th anniversary of the promulgation of Nostra Aetate, the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning is hosting this symposium. As four religions other than Christianity — Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Judaism — are mentioned (in that order) in Nostra Aetate, the symposium will have four sessions devoted respectively to encounters between Christians and members of those four traditions. Each of these sessions will feature two lectures — one by a Catholic scholar and one by a scholar from another religion — followed by a discussion. In addition to the lectures in these four sessions, there will be a keynote address on the overall theme of the symposium at the Monday night banquet.
