Holy Wars

Part of Belief and Beyond Belief

Debate the connections between religion and violence, across the ages in this illuminating panel discussion.

History has seen wars fought in the name of religion, with ideological, territorial or economic justifications- from the conquests of Canaan by the Israelites, the Muslim conquests of the 7th and 8th centuries, the Christian Crusades in the 12th and 13th centuries, and the Wars of Religion in the 16th and 17th centuries:

A panel of historians, religious leaders and experts debate the driving factors which lead to conflict and violence, and investigate religion as a motivator for war.
