Revisiting "Reconsidering Jewish-Christian Relations": Some Thoughts on Theory, History , and Antiquity

Andrew Jacobs is Professor and Chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Scripps College. A specialist in late ancient Christianity, he has written numerous articles on issues of identity formation, the ancient family, and biblical interpretation. His books include Remains of the Jews: The Holy Land and Christian Empire in Late Antiquity (Stanford, 2004) and more recently Christ Circumcised: A Study in Early Christian History and Difference (UPenn, 2012). His talk today will revisit his earlier work on “Jewish-Christian relations” in late antiquity, particularly as it has been shaped by recent theoretical and methological developments.
