NEW YORK — The death
during the second week of
August of the saintly Angli-
can scholar, Dr. James
Parkes, has removed from
our midst one of the primary
architects of the world-wide
movement for improved re-
lations between 'Christians
and Jews.
The passing of this 84-
year-old British historian-
theologian — whose studies
decisively influenced my
career more than any other
single' personality — also
terminated the life of one of
my most cherished personal
friends who did me the high
honor of including me in the
dedication of his book, "Pre-
lude to Dialogue," as one of
"the Pioneers of Dialogue."
In 1928, James Parkes,
an Oxford graduate and
Anglican clergyman, was
serving in Geneva as secre-
tary to the International
Student Service. There he
encountered for the first
time anti-Semitism among
German students and he
learned about "numerus
clausus" discrimination
against Jewish students in
Eastern Europe.
To this civilized, sensi-
tive, and humane Chris-
tian, that anti-Jewish
hatred was a moral
abomination, and he
began an intensive study
of the Christian sources

of anti-Semitism that be-
came his life dedication.
His monumental study,
"The Conflict of the Church
and Synagogue — A Study
in the Origins of Anti-
Semitism," became a
classic, influencing the atti-
tudes of thousands of Chris-
tian leaders. With the con-
stant inspiration and active
help of his marvelous wife,
Dorothy, James Parkes
wrote scores of major books
and pamphlets on Jewish
history and religion, and on
Israel.
So determined and effec-
tive was his pro-Jewish ad-
vocacy that the Nazis placed

his name on Hitler's "death
list."

The last public tribute to
James Parkes several years
ago in Southampton
epitomized his life and work
as one of "the truly right-
eous among the nations."
The text of his honorary
doctorate said it all: "A
scholar in an age of unrea-
son, an individualist in an
