London is bucking nationwide trends and becoming more religious. This research project seeks to map and analyse this phenomenon. (Upcoming)
In the 50th episode of The Sacred, Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to one of our best known contemporary theologians Miroslav Volf. 16/10/2019
Miroslav is Director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture and Professor of Theology at Yale Divinity school. He grew up amidst ethnic tensions in Communist Yugoslavia, and lived through the civil war which pit historically Catholic Croats, Eastern Orthodox Serbs and Bosnian Muslims against each other. Much of his work as a scholar and activist has been trying to make sense of these experiences, including his books ‘Exclusion and embrace’, ‘About reconciliation’, and ‘Allah: A Christian response.’
In this episode he talks about his sacred values of non–violence and freedom to self–determine, what it really takes to love people we perceive as enemies, and what civil war and contemporary British public debates might have in common.
This podcast is a project of Theos Think Tank (@theosthinktank) and is hosted by Elizabeth Oldfield (@theoselizabeth).
