INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL IN INTERRELIGIOUS STUDIES

Pavia, Almo Collegio Borromeo, Italy
29 August – 2 September 2022

Invicta Juditha. Stories of Judith in Judaism, Christianity and Islam form Antiquity to Modern Times

The Book of Judith, although considered apocryphal by some of the monotheisms and Christian denominations, has produced a long tradition of interpretations in Judaism, Christianity and, in a more indirect way, Islam. The Centro di Studi Interreligiosi at the Collegio Borromeo in Pavia (Lombardy) is organising a Summer School (29 August to 2 September 2022) for advanced M.A., Ph.D. and post-doctoral students on the Judith tradition in the three monotheisms.
