“Amen: Closing the Creed, Opening Doors"

Thomas M. Bolin Ph.D.
St. Norbert College

Andrew O'Connon, Ph.D. 
St. Norbert College

The final word of the Apostles’ Creed–indeed the final word of many prayers–is, “Amen.” This deceptively small word has both a fascinating backstory and an inspiring afterlife, originating in Judaism and later finding a home in both Christianity and Islam. Discover how the ending of the Apostles’ Creed invites us through an open door into an encounter with our Jewish and Muslim sisters and brothers.  

Watch the recording. Two handouts are referenced during the lecture: 1st handout and 2nd handout
