THE LOVELL LECTURE: DOES RELIGION DO MORE HARM THAN GOOD?- RUPERT SHORTT

Thursday 14 November 18.00 – 21.00

The Stripe Theatre, The University Of Winchester Sparkford Road, Winchester, Hampshire, SO22 4NR

Are the world's major spiritual traditions sources of greater discord than harmony? Or are conflicts widely blamed on faith differences fundamentally social and political?

Rupert Shortt will be offering insight into one of the most disputed questions of our time, shedding light on the contrast between good and bad religion, and on why the distinction is of urgent relevance in an era increasingly described as post­ secular.

Rupert Shortt is religion editor of The Times Literary Supplement and a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge.

There will be a time for questions from the floor.

A delicious vegetarian buffet from 6.00pm, giving opportunity for interfaith conversation, will be followed by the lecture at 6.45pm.
