The 2020 Beach Lecture: Scripture and Violence – Christian, Jewish and Muslim perspectives

What is the relationship between religion, scripture and violence? Some people worry that scriptures such as the Qur’an and the Bible fan the flames of violence in the world today, while others insist that they are inherently peaceful. The 2020 Beach Lecture features leading contributors to a recent international research project into precisely this question.


Their new book Scripture and Violence was published on 1st September 2020 and will be available at a discount to registered participants in the lecture.   


Speakers: Julia Snyder, Daniel Weiss, Omar Shaukat from the Cambridge Inter-faith Programme

Time and place: 19:30 (BST), Zoom Webinar or Facebook Lifestream
