Special Call for Papers for Vol. 14 (2019)

2019-04-16

In the Spring 2018 issue of Communio, emeritus Pope Benedict XVI published a response to the Commission of the Holy See for Religious Relations with the Jews’ 2015 statement, “‘The Gifts and the Calling of God are Irrevocable’ (Rom 11:29): A Reflection on the Theological Questions Pertaining to Catholic-Jewish Relations on the Occasion of the 50th Anniversary of Nostra Aetate (No. 4).” Recently made available in official English translation, Benedict’s essay, entitled “Grace and Vocation Without Remorse: Comments on the Treatise De Iudaeis,” is a sophisticated presentation worthy of scholarly attention, both because of its content and the identity of the author.

Studies in Christian-Jewish Relations invites the submission of articles that engage with Benedict’s essay and one or more of the issues he raises. Essays that build from his points to make further constructive contributions to Jewish-Christian relations are also welcome.

The deadline for submissions is September 1, 2019.
