UWA Albany Skywest Lecture : The (mis)use of religion in justification of political violence: a comparative analysis Other events...
Professor Oliver Rafferty will look at religiously motivated violence and the attitude of religious authorities to them. As he examines the Crusades, the Church's attitude to political violence in Ireland and contemporary issues surrounding Islamic fundamentalist violence questions arise. Is the result of all this to undermine the role of religion as an instrument of peace in the world, and therefore to give ammunition to hostile non-believers who assert that religion in itself is fundamentally a cause of suffering in the world?
