Violence and Peace in Sacred Texts

DISCUSSION OF A NEW BOOK FEATURING A RANGE OF RELIGIOUS EXPERTS EXPLORING THE INTERPRETATION OF VIOLENCE IN THEIR SACRED TEXTS

February 7, 2023
1:00 p.m. ET
Online

Religiously inspired violence remains a tragic feature of today’s world. We invite you to join us for a discussion of the just published book, Violence and Peace in Sacred Texts: Interreligious Perspectives, a collection featuring essays by 11 experts from a range of religious backgrounds. The discussion will include the book’s editors, Dr. Helen Paynter and Dr. Maria Power, in conversation with Rabbi Deborah Kahn-Harris and Dr. Alan Mittleman of JTS, who contributed essays to the collection. They will talk about the interpretation of violence in their sacred texts and the role that world religions have played both in war and conflict and in the creation of peaceful settlements.

Sponsored by the Milstein Center for Interreligious Dialogue at JTS.
