JP2 Lecture: John, Lord Alderdice, University of Oxford “Religion as Source of Peace or Unrest in Society?”

Events

The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) sponsors several events each year and previously did not have a unified source of information about university events. The purpose of the Angelicum Events Calendar is to serve as a method for publicizing University-sponsored events that have been approved and scheduled.

Eventi

La Pontificia Università di San Tommaso d'Aquino (Angelicum) sponsorizza migliaia di eventi ogni anno. Negli scorsi anni non vi era una fonte unificata di informazioni sugli eventi universitari. Lo scopo del Calendario eventi dell'Angelicum è quello di servire come mezzo per la pubblicità degli eventi sponsorizzati dall'Università che sono stati approvati e pianificati.

JP2 Lecture: John, Lord Alderdice, University of Oxford “Religion as Source of Peace or Unrest in Society?”

Oct 22 at 16:00 - 17:30

Religion is regularly blamed by its opponents for being a source of unrest and even violent conflict, and they are able to point to many instances in the past and the present where this appears to be the case. Adherents claim that, on the contrary, their religion is a source of peace, at a personal level as well as more widely in society. It is of course people, individually and in community, who are responsible for bringing conflict or its resolution, but how does our interpretation of our religion contribute to these outcomes and why? These challenging questions will be addressed by Lord Alderdice from the perspectives of psychology, politics and faith – all fields in which he has a long-standing involvement and commitment.
