ISBN 9780334040965

By the time this review is published, Tony Blair will no longer be Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. He pushed for a decision to be taken by the next general election: he wanted the UK to commit to replacing the current Trident system (a stock of 58 missiles and under 200 warheads, some of these housed on four nuclear submarines) with a new generation of nuclear weapons and submarines. The British Trident submarines are scheduled for retirement ...

Vanquishing Evil Without The Help Of God: The Man From U.N.C.L.E. And A World Come Of Age, Richard Grigg Ph.D.

Philosophy, Theology and Religious Studies Faculty Publications

One of the most distinctive religious features of the 1960s was the death of God theology. It is useful to look back at the death of God movement from the perspective of communication studies. After all, the movement received unprecedented coverage in the popular media. More intriguing, however is the specific fashion in which death of God theologian William Hamilton, one of the most influential figures in the discussion of the death of God, referred to particular aspects of the modern communication environment. According to Hamilton, the communication technologies of the 1960s helped make it a world "come of age ...


The Latin Liturgy And The Jews, Anthony J. Cernera, Eugene Korn Oct 2007

The Latin Liturgy And The Jews, Anthony J. Cernera, Eugene Korn

Mission and Catholic Identity Publications

Pope Benedict XVI's recent letter to bishops authorizing wider use of the 1962 Roman Missal, commonly referred to as the Latin Mass, has provoked strong reactions from Jews and Catholics worldwide who are committed to furthering the historic work of reconciliation begun at the Second Vatican Council with the “Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions” (Nostra Aetate, 1965). Many are concerned that some language in the missal harkens back to the Adversus Judaeos tradition within Christianity, which for some 18 centuries saw Jews as a threat to Christian society. This tradition was forthrightly and courageously ...

Examining Nostra Aetate After 40 Years: Catholic-Jewish Relations In Our Time, Anthony J. Cernera, Ed.

Sacred Heart University Press Books

On October 28, 1965, the Catholic bishops of the world voted to approve the shortest and perhaps most controversial document of Vatican II, Nostra Aetate, which addresses the relationship of the Catholic Church to non-Christians. Significantly, it signaled to the Jewish people and to the world that the Catholic Church was rethinking its attitudes, teachings and practices regarding Jews.

More than 40 years later, editor Anthony J. Cernera, Ph.D., former president of Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut, presents a volume of essays describing the past, present and future of the Nostra Aetate story. It calls attention to the ...

SHU Faculty Publications

Nostra Aetate (Declaration on the Relationship of the Church to Non-Christian Religions, 1965), and subsequent documents, Guidelines and Suggestions (1974), Notes on the Correct Way to Present the Jews and Judaism in Preaching and Catechesis in the Catholic Church (1985), and We Remember: A Reflection on the Shoah (1998), prepared the path for a theological and educational agenda that was both corrective (the purging of anti-Jewish material from textbooks, catechisms, and preaching) and provided an opportunity for renewal, especially in the growth in theological study and dialogue between Christians and Jews. Since the founding of the first Interfaith Center in ...
