Divine Law: A Tale of Two Concepts (and Three Responses)

March 3, 2014 0

In late antiquity, two radically distinct conceptions of divine law—Greek natural law grounded in reason and biblical law grounded in revelation—confronted one another with a force that reverberates to the present.  This lecture explores three ancient Jewish responses to these dueling conceptions of divine law—responses that would shape western civilization in profound ways.
