Does the History of Anti-Judaism Have Anything to do with the Present?

Ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans; Christians and Muslims of every period; even the secularists of modernity have used Judaism in constructing their visions of the world. What relationship do these uses have to each other? Do past forms of life and thought affect later ones? If so, can we write a history of these forms? And what, if any, hold might this history of past thought have upon ways in which we ourselves can think in the present?

This event is supported by the Elizabeth and Tony Comper Holocaust Education Fund.

This event is free and open to the public.  Registration is  not required.  For further information, please contact the Centre for Jewish Studies at (416) 978-1624 or cjs.events@utoronto.ca.
