The Paul A. and Marie Castelfranco Lecture Archive

The Castelfranco Chair in Religious Studies was generously endowed by Professor Paul A. Castelfranco and his wife Marie in 2002. The purpose of the Chair was to attract a senior scholar in the history of post-New Testament Christianity with a proven interest in inter-religious dialogue and comparative religion and a sensitivity to contemporary religious and cultural issues. The initial term of the endowed Chair was five years with the option of reappointment. The first appointee to the Chair was Dr. Allison P. Coudert, whose focus of interest is on the interaction between religion and science, with a special emphasis on Jewish contributions to science and issues dealing with race, class, and gender.
