Oremus et pro perfidis judaeis
On Anti-Semitism, Israel, and the People of God in Christian Liturgies 
by Prof. Pablo Argárate Dr. phil., Dr. theol. (Tübingen) (St. Michael’s College)


This lecture discusses the highly relevant and polemical question of the different perceptions of the Jews and Israel offered in the diverse Christian liturgies from the first up to the twenty-first centuries, in the eastern (Syrian, Armenian, Ethiopian, Coptic) and western (Roman, Gallican, Ambrosian, and Mozarabic as well as Reformed) traditions, taking into account liturgical texts from the Liturgy of the Hours, Baptism, and especially the Eucharist, with particular attention to the Eucharistic Prayers.
