Divine Law: A Tale of Two Concepts (and three responses)

In late antiquity, two radically distinct conceptions of divine law – Greek natural law grounded in reason and biblical law grounded in revelation – confronted one another with a force that reverberates to the present.  This lecture explores three ancient Jewish responses to these dueling conceptions of divine law – responses that would shape western civilization in profound ways.
