Archeologist rabbi to explore common roots of Christianity and Judaism in public Lux lecture

Feb. 19, 2014

How is archeology changing Jewish and Catholic identity?

That’s the topic of a free public lecture set for March 9, hosted by the Lux Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies at Sacred Heart School of Theology. Rabbi Dr. Richard Freund of the University of Hartford in Connecticut will discuss exciting recent discoveries in the region around the Sea of Galilee and what Jews and Catholics share with respect to their common roots in that place.

“Both rabbinical Judaism and the Jesus movement sprang from the same soil – the Galilee region during the Roman Period. We are now in a position to explore how that understanding alters the way we understand our faith traditions,” Freund said.

The lecture is Sunday, March 9 at 2:00 p.m., in the main lobby of Sacred Heart School of Theology, 7335 S. Highway 100, Franklin.

The lecture is free of charge, but advance registration is required. Seating is limited.

About Rabbi Freund
Long before his appearances on TV specials brought him status as a celebrity archaeologist, Freund earned his reputation as an author, university professor and, foremost, a working archeologist. He is director of the Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Hartford. Freund is an ordained rabbi with a Ph.D. from the Jewish Theological Seminary. He has also written two volumes on Jewish ethics. Freund has directed six archaeological projects in Israel, including digs at Qumran, Nazareth and Yavne, as well as projects in Spain. He has also appeared in the History Channel’s “God vs.Satan: The Final Battle,” CNN’s “After Jesus: The First Christians” and NOVA’s “Ancient Refuge in the Holy Land,” based on his book Secrets of the Cave of Letters.
