Imagining Heschel Summary

Imagining Heschel (A Concert Reading) imagines the private conversations between Cardinal Augustin Bea and Rabbi Abraham Heschel during the summer and late fall of 1968. While the Pope seant Bea to Heschel to implore him to accept a formal and public apology from the Catholic Church for their silence during the Holocaust, Heschel turned the meetings around – lobbying the Pope to formally exonerate the Jews for the death of Christ, a crucial repudiation of anti-Semitism. The riveting discussions between these philosophical giants in the midst of the myriad conflicts of the late 1960’s-resolution in the Middle East, while raising important questions about the intellectual justification of retaliation within any faith community.
