What does it take to be Anti-Jewish? A deconstruction of statements held to be Anti-Jewish in Early Christian writers
In this presentation, originally given at the Cambridge University Faculty of Divinity, Dr Elena Narinskaya discusses the tendency to describe early Christian writers as being anti-Semitic and anti-Jewish. Looking in particular at examples from the writings of St Ephrem the Syrian, Dr Narinskaya examines and questions the process by which these terms come to be attached to patristic authors.
