Type of Event: Seminar

Part of the Greek-Turkish Encounters Series, seminar held jointly with King’s College London.

The historical role of the Hellenistic Jews as a touchstone of European and Near Eastern intellectual history stands beyond doubt. To take just one example, all the authors of the New Testament were Jews who spoke and wrote Greek. The question addressed by this talk is: What was the history of these Jews after the parting of the ways, between Christianity and Judaism?
