The (Mis) Use of History in Holocaust Theology.  On 22 February, CJS co-director Prof. Daniel Langton will explore the engagement with history among religious commentators on the Holocaust, reflected in their writings about the uniqueness of the Shoah, its challenge to Judaism and the covenant, its connection to the State of Israel, and the problem of evil. He will critique the claim that, ultimately, historical analysis is incapable of explaining the Nazi genocide, and criticise the tendency to trace God’s providential action and revelation in history. Time and Venue: 2.15pm, Divinity Faculty. Further information.
