Rupert Shortt (religion editor of The Times Literary Supplement and a Research Associate at the University of Cambridge) will be offering insight into one of the most disputed questions of our time, shedding light on the contrast between good and bad religion, and on why the distinction is of urgent relevance in an era increasingly described as post-secular.

A vegetarian buffet will be available from 6pm, giving the opportunity for interfaith conversation before the lecture commences at 6.45pm. There will also be time for questions from the floor afterwards.
