Theology & Religious Studies


Since the Second Vatican Council, Jews and Christians have engaged in dialogue with one another in ways which seem very new. Yet this is not the first time these two groups encountered one another as equals. In the religious pluralism that defined Sassanian Iraq (224-651 CE), Jews and Christians founded institutions which would guide the religious lives of both communities. The Talmudic academies and the Christian Schools of this period had much in common–pointing to a shared religious landscape and suggesting a framework for interreligious understanding today.
