Item description for Tenebrae: Holy Week After the Holocaust by Theresa Sanders...

'What could Ash Wednesday mean after Auschwitz? A Catholic theologian ponders the symbolism of Holy Week Elie Wiesel has said that the Holocaust is not a Jewish problem; it is a Christian problem. After more than sixty years, it remains an urgent task for Christians to take seriously the challenges posed by the Holocaust and ongoing anti-Semitism. How can Catholicism's festivals be celebrated and its symbols venerated after six million were murdered within earshot of its churches? The collision of symbols is particularly evident in the liturgies of Holy Week--Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Tenebrae, and Easter that celebrate the central mysteries of the Catholic faith. Tenebrae explores these liturgies and their underlying theologies to see how they might fruitfully engage and be engaged by one of the most profoundly disturbing periods in world history.
