The trial of Jesus

23 March 2016 - 18:00

Extended lecture in English by Joseph Weiler

The trial of Jesus is arguably the most important and certainly the most famous trial in the history of Western civilisation.

Thousands of articles, hundreds of books have been written about the trial. Yet not a single one of them has asked this simple question: what has been the impact of this trial on the concept of justice in civilisation? It is this theme which will be addressed by Professor Joseph Weiler, President of the European University Institute.
