Killing in the Name of God: Addressing Religiously Inspired Violence
Robin Gill explores religiously inspired violence drawing on research into public attitudes on the topic. (2018)
In the 22nd episode of The Sacred, Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to the political theorist and author Teresa Bejan. 19/09/2018
Teresa M. Bejan is Associate Professor of Political Theory in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Oxford and a Fellow of Oriel College. Her 2017 book, Mere Civility: Disagreement and the Limits of Toleration examines contemporary calls for civility in light of seventeenth–century debates about religious toleration in England and America.
In this episode Teresa Bejan talks about being raised “lapsed catholic”, why evangelism is no more uncivil than other forms of persuasion, why she (and most of us) find disagreement disagreeable and the role of gender in debates.
The Sacred is produced by Hussein Kesvani and No Country Media.
