Two-Day Symposium on Religious and Political Disagreement

Thursday, April 20, 2017 – Friday, April 21, 2017 St. Olaf College

The St. Olaf College Institute for Freedom and Community will host a Symposium on Religious and Political Disagreement that will feature four distinguished scholars of religion: Robert Benne, Amy Black, Mitri Raheb, and Miroslav Volf.

These four distinguished scholars of religion will address issues of religious and political disagreement as they bear on (a) diversity within the Christian community largely considered, (b) differences among evangelical Christians, (c) debates arising out of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and (d) disagreements among the “world religions” (e.g., Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism) and secular perspectives in pluralistic and globalized societies.

The event is co-sponsored by the Institute for Freedom & Community and the Martin E. Marty Chair in Religion and the Academy.
