“Is religion dangerous?” – public lecture

September 23, 2008 in General, News

Professor Keith WardThe question to which the third public lecture of Studies Quarterly Review and The Iona Institute will be addressed is ‘Is religion dangerous?’ This is the title of one of the books written by the guest lecturer, Professor Keith Ward, and will form the premise for his remarks at the event on Thursday 2 October in the Davenport Hotel, Dublin 2, at 8.00pm. Professor Ward was a distinguished academic at both Oxford and Cambridge, a fellow of the British Academy, and an Anglican priest. Without religion, he will argue, the human race would be considerably worse off and have little hope for the future.
