Judaism and Christianity: The Holocaust

The examination of the historical and contemporary relation of Jews and Christians, through a study of critical events, comparative literature and correlated theologies in an analysis that recognizes both interrelated unity and tragic antagonism. In line with Catholic teaching on the Shoah, the course strives to create a deeper understanding of the interrelated causes of genocides in general and of the Holocaust in particular. Students should become more aware of the relationship between religious discourse and its political and social ties, as well as the complicity of all human beings in unjust social structures.
