Questions and comments


"The Debate on the Resurrection of the Dead in Late Antiquity. Traces of Jewish-Christian Interaction in the Talmud"

In this workshop Professor Dr. Morgenstern will concentrate on a larger passage in the tractate Sanhedrin of the Babylonian Talmud. The passage shows that it was difficult for the Rabbis to prove exegetically, from the Hebrew Bible, that there will be a resurrection of the dead at the end of time. Morgenstern will discuss new approaches in interpreting this passage. 

The lecture as well as the seminar take place in Aud. 2, MF.
