about

This book makes available in English important essays that mark the fortieth anniversary of the Second Vatican Council's Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions (Nostra Aetate). Surveying Vatican dialogues and documents, the essays explore challenging theological questions posed by the Shoah and the Catholic recognition of the Jewish people's covenantal life with God.

Featuring essays by Vatican officials, leading rabbis, diplomats, and Catholic and Jewish scholars, the book discusses the nature of Christian-Jewish relations and the need to remember their conflicted and often tragic
history, aspects of a Christian theology of Judaism, the Catholic-Jewish dialogue since the Shoah, and the establishment of formal diplomatic relations between the Holy See and Israel. The book includes an essay
by Cardinal Walter Kasper, president of the Pontifical Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, and documents on the rapprochement between the Church and the Jewish people.

Philip A. Cunningham is Executive Director of the Center for Christian- Jewish Learning at Boston College. Norbert J. Hofmann, S.D.B., is Secretary of the Holy See's Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews. Joseph Sievers is Director of the Cardinal Bea Centre for Judaic Studies at the Pontifical Gregorian University, Rome.

Editorial Reviews

The Catholic Church and the Jewish People is an extraordinarily useful commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the Vatican CouncilDeclaration on the Jews. Outstanding authorities provide historical perspective, an account of the evolution of the document itself, and analyses of its impact on Jewish-Catholic relations both in the immediate aftermath of the Council and in the long term. An invaluable collection for academics, interfaith activists, and all Jews and Christians interested in the historic transformation in their mutual relationsinaugurated by Vatican II.
