Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme

 
Featuring detail of book cover with hand grenade and well-thumbed book.

In the public sphere, it is often assumed that acts of violence carried out by Muslims are inspired by their religious commitment and encouraged by the Qur’an. Some people express similar concerns about the scriptures and actions of Christians and Jews. Might they be right? What role do scriptural texts play in motivating and justifying violence in these three traditions?

Celebrating the publication of Scripture and Violence (ed. Dr Julia Snyder and Dr Daniel Weiss), this unique online event will hear responses to such questions from the book's editors and contributors. It will also introduce a variety of free resources that have been prepared to accompany the book. These enable local groups to engage with the subject matter whether in the classroom or within religious communities.

This event will be held on Zoom. Register via Eventbrite.

Part of World Interfaith Harmony Week.
