On the Question of Redemption – Messianism and the End of Days

Dialogues on Jewish Present: Lectures and Discussion with Moshe Idel and Elliot R. Wolfson, Chair: Micha Brumlik (audio recording available)

What is redemption and will it ever come? The elementary crisis of the 21st century has endowed the quest for the Messiah with a new sense of virulence. However the messianic promise opens up a wide range of conflicting priorities between religion and politics, Jewish law and the vision of the “End of Days”.
