Talk – 'Life After Death in Faith Traditions of Judaism, Christianity and Islam'

College of Humanities
February 15, 2017

Date: Feb. 22
Time: 4:30-6 p.m.
Location: UA Poetry Center

Join us for a discussion on "Life After Death in Faith Traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam," sponsored by the UA College of Humanities, College of Social & Behavioral Sciences, and the Institute for the Study of Religion & Culture.

Jews, Christians and Muslims are members of the Abrahamic family of faith, all claiming descent from the family of Abraham. Yet despite their common origins, they have followed their separate paths, not always in ways that are respectful of one another.

There is no greater certainty than the certainty of death. What remains a mystery for believers and nonbelievers alike is what happens after we die. Is death final, is there an afterlife and if so, what form does it take? Whatever the response, it can only be viewed as an act of faith. How Judaism, Christianity and Islam have each addressed this dilemma will be the focus of our conversation this afternoon.

This event is in memory of Peter Foley (1961-2016), founding director of the Institute for the Study of Religion and Culture.
