Special CFP for Vol. 13 (2018)

Between the recent English publication of Vittorio Messori's Kidnapped by the Vatican? The Unpublished Memoirs of Edgardo Mortara and the forthcoming Steven Spielberg film based on David Kertzer’s The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara, this nineteenth-century story of the secret baptism of a Jewish baby and his subsequent removal from his parental home, to be raised as special ward of Pope Pius IX, will again be a topic of dialogue between Jews and Christians. Studies in Christian-Jewish Relations invites the submission of articles from a variety of perspectives and disciplines on aspects of this case. What is the meaning of baptism? How has or might have that meaning shifted in light of the teachings of the Second Vatican Council and subsequent developments? How do Jews and Christians think about those who leave and join their communities? What is the impact of hearing Mortara’s own voice on our understandings?

SCJR is included in the following indexes: ATLA Religion Database; EBSCO's Academic Search Complete (ASC), Historical Abstracts, America: History and Life, and Humanities International Index; Index to Jewish Periodicals; and RAMBI (Index of Articles on Jewish Studies).
