Co-sponsored by the Bennett Center for Judaic Studies and the Center for Catholic Studies, Dr. Reed will present “Ancient Judaism Between Christian Memory and Jewish Forgetting.”

On Wednesday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. Annette Yoshiko Reed, PhD, will explore the place of memory and forgetting in the reception of Second Temple Judaism, revisiting the supposed Rabbinic retreat from “history” after the Roman destruction of the Temple in 70 CE and exploring Christian and Jewish contestation over pre-70 Jewish pasts, from antiquity to the present.

Dr. Reed’s lecture, “Ancient Judaism Between Christian Memory and Jewish Forgetting," is the 18th Annual Jewish/Christian Engagement Lecture, and will take place in Fairfield University’s Kelley Center Presentation Room. This in-person event is free and open to the public.

Dr. Reed is the Krister Stendahl Chair of Divinity and Professor of New Testament and Early Christianity at Harvard Divinity School. She studies ancient Jews and Christians, with a focus on questions of knowledge, identity, and difference. Her recent books include Jewish-Christianity and the History of Judaism and Christianity​ (2018) and Demons, Angels, and Writing in Ancient Judaism (2020). She is currently working on a book on the cultural power of forgetting, focusing on the Jewish reception of the Second Temple past.
