Extractions: Faculty of Divinity, Centre for Advanced Religious and Theological Studies Theology and Religious Studies, like many other subjects, has seen a rise in interest over the past decade in what was formerly known as 'feminist' or 'women's' studies - a subject that is more accurately called 'gender' studies. The Faculty of Divinity has scholars of international renown in all branches of Christian theology as well as a growing and distinguished team of lecturers in the fields of Jewish, Islamic and Hindu studies. An increasing number of research students would like to work on projects which fall within one of the more traditional branches of Theology or Religious Studies, but which will involve gender studies as well. To assist such students, wherever their principal focus lies, the Faculty would like to create a post in Gender and Religion as soon as it has the funding to do so. The primary need is for someone who can, within a young field, develop and direct research. This post would, therefore, be at the level of Assistant Director of Research, whose principal responsibilities would lie, within CARTS, in the development of research in religious aspects of gender studies and in helping the present lecturers direct the studies of the increasing number of graduate students (both at doctoral and M.Phil. levels) who wish to work on projects in this area. In addition, it is hoped that the ADR would be able to offer assistance with undergraduate teaching and so broaden the courses available at this level.

Extractions: DABRU EMET A JEWISH STATEMENT ON CHRISTIANS AND CHRISTIANITY In recent years, there has been a dramatic and unprecedented shift in Jewish and Christian relations. Throughout the nearly two millennia of Jewish exile, Christians have tended to characterize Judaism as a failed religion or, at best, a religion that prepared the way for, and is completed in, Christianity. In the decades since the Holocaust, however, Christianity has changed dramatically. An increasing number of official Church bodies, both Roman Catholic and Protestant, have made public statements of their remorse about Christian mistreatment of Jews and Judaism. These statements have declared, furthermore, that Christian teaching and preaching can and must be reformed so that they acknowledge Gods enduring covenant with the Jewish people and celebrate the contribution of Judaism to world civilization and to Christian faith itself. We believe these changes merit a thoughtful Jewish response. Speaking only for ourselves an interdenominational group of Jewish scholars we believe it is time for Jews to learn about the efforts of Christians to honor Judaism. We believe it is time for Jews to reflect on what Judaism may now say about Christianity. As a first step, we offer eight brief statements about how Jews and Christians may relate to one another. Jews and Christians worship the same God.

The brisk night air invading your lungs like the hurried march of ants, beetles, and other crawling things - the one's without names. How pleasant to be secure. How trusting. Ignorance wraps such a protective blanket around those that cling to her; children of a blind mother. But the corners never lie. The feeling that as you peer, something else, just out of reach, eagerly peers back, applauds your enfeebled knowledge of dark places and hidden things. But as you stumble - a crack in the pavement, you've missed it every other time, but tonight is different - you catch something. The sight of shadows and eyes, of darkness too black, and silence too quiet. And then it's gone, leaving you with nothing but a quickened pulse and a question. The Fearing seeps through your veins, a fire of molten emotion - nothing that ever really happened, but it's all true, like a tabloid with the right idea, the wrong deliver. An Insane Rapture can come over you. This is where madness is the cure for the only disease that ever really mattered: normalcy.

Extractions: Faculty of Divinity University of Cambridge Faculty of Divinity Between three and four billion of the world's population are directly involved in the major religions. The fostering of religious understanding, therefore, has immense implications, not only for the convictions, values and world-views of people throughout the world, but also for the flourishing of communities, institutions, and whole social systems. The Cambridge Faculty of Divinity is at the forefront of response to this complex situation: Theology and Religious Studies in Cambridge today is about pursuing questions of meaning, truth and practice in relation to the religions of the world. It has responsibilities to a wide range of academic disciplines, as well as to religious communities and modern societies which are deeply concerned about the massive transformations occurring around us.
