COLLOQUIUM 2018 –

‘A WORLD WITHOUT CHRISTIANITY’

What would a Post-Christian world look like?

The Centre’s fourth annual colloquium. Is religion a hindrance to peace – or quite the opposite? Would our world be a better place stripped of all religion, but particularly of Christianity? Would we be the poorer or the richer for that? What, if anything, would or could take Christianity’s place? What is the case for retaining and recognising religion as a vital asset, part of our social capital?
