The relationship between religion and violence is one of the most pressing issues in the modern world. Religion is often said to be the cause of the devastating wars and acts of terrorism that have characterised the twenty-first century, and to have been central to the bloodshed of past epochs that has been used to justify them. Violence appears to be foundational to many religions themselves, enshrined in their sacred texts and intrinsic to the cultures they create. However, paradoxically, peacemaking and reconciliation are also often associated with religion and religions too. This course is an opportunity to get behind the headlines and gain an informed understanding of this vital subject.
