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.

Join us for our annual Albert and Vera List Fund for Jewish Studies Lecture, presented by Christine Hayes, Weis Professor of Religious Studies in Classical Judaica at Yale University.

Our events are free and open to the public.
