The long, complex, and often unfortunate relationship between slavery and Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.

FREE OPEN LECTURE

The world’s religions have complex and often troubling relationships with the institution of slavery. Although some Christians fought for abolition of the slave trade based on their faith, others used the Bible to justify keeping other humans as property. The Abrahamic religions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam arose in an era of slave societies. We’ll look at their long, complex, and often unfortunate relationships with the institution.

The presentation ends around 9.00. The exchange of ideas usually continues until 10, or even later, while we share complimentary snacks and beverages.
