March 30: Religion and Human Flourishing in a Globalized World

Presented by: Anselm House and the Jay Phillips Center for Interfaith Learning, University of St. Thomas

What: 21st Annual Holmer Lecture: Religion and Human Flourishing in a Globalized World

Do we need religion in our modern, globalized world, or is it only a source of conflict and violence? Can religious adherents believe in the truth of their own religions while still protecting the rights of others to believe and practice differently? In this lecture, Dr. Miroslav Volf, Henry B. Wright Professor of Systematic Theology and director of the Yale Center for Faith and Culture at the Yale Divinity School, will explain why world religions offer the moral visions needed to address the challenges of globalization. Volf also shows why religious exclusivism does not conflict with a political pluralism that allows for religious freedom, but actually supports it.
