THE LOVELL LECTURE: Does religion do more harm than good?- Rupert Shortt

Stripe Theatre, University of Winchester

14th Nov 2019 6.00pm - 14th Nov 2019 9pm Event Type: Lecture

Are the world's major spiritual traditions sources of greater discord than harmony? Or are conflicts widely blamed on faith differences fundamentally social and political?

Rupert Shortt will be offering insight into one of the most disputed  questions of our time, shedding light on the contrast between good and bad religion, and on why the distinction is of urgent relevance in an era increasingly described as post­ secular.

Rupert Shortt is religion editor of The Times Literary Supplement and a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge.

There will be a time for questions from the floor.

A delicious vegetarian buffet from 6.00pm, giving opportunity for interfaith conversation, will be followed  by the lecture at 6.45pm.

This event is free to attend, but please register your interest with canons.pa@winchester­ cathedral.org.uk.
