The Center for the Study of Christianity
The Center for the Study of Christianity was established in 1999, thanks to the generosity of Hubert and Aldegonde Brenninkmeijer-Werhahn, and dedicated in March 2000, just ahead of John Paul II’s historic visit to Israel. Since its founding the Center has been connected with the Department of Comparative Religion, where Christian studies are taught. The Hebrew University is a secular institution, and the Center has no religious dimension or theological mission, overt or hidden. It is the only institution of its kind in Israel.
