Jesus, Jews, & Jihad: the Misremembered Christ & the Sick Soul of the West- The Annual Ellen Catherine Gstalder Memorial Lecture

Stained glass windows in a church

Join Harriette Hemmasi, Dean of Libraries and the Library Associates for the Annual Ellen Catherine Gstalder Memorial Lecture on Thursday, March 14 from 6-8 pm in Lauinger Library.

This year's event will feature James Carroll, award winning author and Georgetown University alumn, whose lecture entitled "Jesus, Jews, & Jihad: the Misremembered Christ & the Sick Soul of the West" will discuss the early mistake the followers of Jesus made in deleting his permanent Jewishness from their memory, and how that mistake helped set in motion religious anti-Judaism, racial anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, and racism more generally. The way back from this mistake lies in a full Christian retrieval of the Jewishness of Jesus - a process that is underway.

The Ellen Catherine Gstalder (C’98) Memorial Lecture Fund supports an annual lecture on significant social issues in America. The lecture was founded in 2007 to honor the memory of Ellen Gstalder.
