About the Event

Interfaith Dialogue between Thomas Merton and Abraham Joshua Heschel

Thursday, March 24  | 6:30 pm (EDT) 

Fee: $20, or whatever you can afford

Thomas Merton’s interfaith dialogue with the Jewish rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel sets an example of how these two religious figures from the twentieth century learned from each other and respected their theological differences while  still finding common ground. Cristóbal Serrán-Pagán y Fuentes will share his insights via Zoom as to how Merton and Heschel have become models of creative interreligious dialogue and witnesses for global peace. He will highlight major themes found in the exchange of letters between the Trappist monk and the Jewish spiritual master.

Dr. Cristóbal Serrán-Pagán y Fuentes is Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Valdosta State University. He received his Ph.D. in Religious Studies from Boston University. He is the editor of the Thomas Merton series, Merton and the Tao: Dialogues with John Wu and the Ancient Sages (Fons Vitae, 2013) and the author of Saint John of the Cross: His Prophetic Mysticism in the Historical Context of Sixteenth-Century Spain . He is a member of the International Thomas Merton Society; and has published and lectured widely on the works of Thomas Merton.

Fee: $20, or whatever you can afford.
