Title: Inaugural Jewish Studies Lecture on Why Spinoza Was Excommunicated
Date: Wed. Oct 26, 2011
Time: 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Description: Presented by Dr. Steven Ladler, University of Wisconsin, the first June Baumgardner Gelbert lecture in Jewish Studies is titled, Why Was Spinoza Excommunicated? Baruch Spinoza, a Dutch philosopher, was excommunicated from the Dutch Jewish community for his controversial ideas questioning the authenticity of the Hebrew Bible and ideas of the divine. Gaining posthumous fame for his work, Ethics, Spinoza later came to be considered one of the greatest philosophers of the 17th century. He was 23 when he was removed from Jewish society. Hosted by the USF departments of Religious Studies and Philosophy, the lecture series is funded by the June Baumgardner Gelbart Foundation.
