Description

John Pawlikowski and Robert A. Cathey discuss "Righting Relations After the Holocaust and Vatican II: Essays in Honor of John Pawlikowski, OSM." A Q&A and signing will follow the discussion.

At the Co-op

About the book: The idea of righting relations in history and creation as a particular articulation of the concept of justice is the broad theme that runs through many of John Pawlikowski s contributions to different fields of inquiry. The aftermath of both the Holocaust and Vatican II called us to reflect on relationships, both personal and institutional. How do we repair wounded relationships? What is the nature of relationships with integrity? John Pawlikowski s work as a social ethicist, scholar of the Holocaust, and specialist in interreligious dialogue is fundamentally based on the pursuit of right relationships and conditioned by responding to the moral claims of the Holocaust and Vatican II.
