Lecture Doron Bar: Cemeteries as holy places?

23 June 2023 11:00 - 12:30

The PThU's OT and Judaism Chair Group, in cooperation with Erasmus+, invites you to a lecture and subsequent discussion (in English) with Prof Doron Bar, historical geographer at the Schechter Institute in Jerusalem.

About the lecture

The lecture examines the phenomenon of 'tsadification', visiting graves of 'tsadikim', Jewish religious teachers, as a new form of pilgrimage in Israel. As a result, new memorials are emerging to replace existing, official shrines and secular memorials.


Utrecht University, Drift 21, room 104, Utrecht. Drift 21 is near the university library.
