Each year a symposium is held at which three or four papers are presented on a particular topic.
The talks are usually recorded and are made available as MP3s to download, or as Youtube videos (narrated PowerPoints) to view.
Scroll down the page for links to previous symposia.
These events are free to members of Faith and Thought (or those joining on the day). Otherwise just £10 (£7 concessions). There is no need to book in advance but if you could drop me an email to let me know you are coming it would help to have a rough idea of numbers firstname.lastname@example.org

This will address the thorny question of whether the monotheistic god of the Abrahamic Religions, is a god of violence? In a time when such a view is seen as abhorrent, how should we interpret texts that deal with massacres? What can archaeology teach us about this time? Are Christianity, Islam and Judaism reading the stories differently?
