Religious Violence: Phenomena, Fact & Fiction

William Cavanaugh February 2, 2017

Is religion a deeply rooted cause of violence throughout history? Are the core convictions of religious movements inherently prone to divisiveness? Dr. William Cavanaugh, professor of Catholic Studies and director of the Center for World Catholicism and Intercultural Theology at DePaul University, will explore these ideas and unearth the typical roots of conflict throughout history. Join us for this free event, held on the UW-Madison campus in partnership with Badger Catholic, Geneva Campus Church, InterVarsity Midwest Region Grad/Faculty Ministries, Pres House, and St. Francis House.
