Mary C. Boys, Ph.D., Catherine Cornille, Ph.D., Peter Feldmeier, Ph.D., Sandra Keating, Ph.D., Ruth Langer, Ph.D., Bradley Malkovsky, Ph.D., Anantanand Rambachan, Ph.D., Mark Unno, Ph.D., and Homayra Ziad, Ph.D.

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 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 the lectures in these four sessions, there will be an address on the overall theme of the symposium.

All programs offered by the University of St. Thomas shall be readily accessible to individuals with disabilities. For details, call (651) 962-6315.
