Study Day

23rd July 2016, 10.30-17.45

Hurtado Jesuit Centre

Is Religion Good for You? Has become a more pressing question, due to the rise of militant Islam and radical secularism. The increasing temptation to give this question a negative answer makes finding an intelligent response to it urgent. The Study Day on the 23rd July 2016 at the Hurtado Centre aims to provide a fruitful basis for exploring the value of religion in the modern age.
