During the year 2019-2020, the CARDINAL BEA CENTRE organized a serie of three lectures on the subject of art in dialogue, especially music, literature and visual arts.

It’s in that context that Hervé Roten, ethnomusicologist and Director of the European Institute for Jewish Music, gave a lecture on the singular purality of Jewish music.
His counterpart, the musicologist and theologian Philippe Charru, Chief of Department of Aesthetics of the Centre Sèvres - Facultés Jésuites of Paris and holder of the grand organ de Saint-Ignace, presented during his lecture a comparison of Bach’s Incarnatus est and Mozart’s one, to show how musical composition itself captures religious conceptions other than christianism.
Moderator : Claudio Procaccia, Director of department of Jewish culture in the Jewish community of Rome.
