Guest speaker: Prof. Dr Thorsten Dietz
“Every war in history was caused by religious groups.”
“Religious wars are basically people fighting over who has the better imaginary friend.”
“Religion is the root of wars.”
Many people have made accusations like these. But are they justified? Or completely wrong?
Prof. Dr Thorsten Dietz is teaching systematic theology at Evangelische Hochschule Tabor. In today’s talk he is going to ask the questions above. He is going to discuss to what extent religion is and has been part of and reason for violent conflicts. Current events and groups as well as their ideologies and involvement in religion will also be subject of discussion.
