Symposium marking the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council’s Nostra Aetate: Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions 

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) inNostra Aetate, the symposium will have four sessions devoted respectively to Hindu-Christian relations, Buddhist-Christian relations, Muslim-Christian relations, and Jewish-Christian relations. 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 these four sessions, there will be a banquet and a address on the overall theme of the symposium. Click here to go to the symposium's homepage.
