Lecture on "dark side" of Christian history, April 17
Posted April 14, 2000; 09:44 a.m.
Helen Ellerbe, writer, researcher and author, will lecture on "The Dark Side of Christian History" on April 17 at 8 p.m. in Betts Auditorium in the Architecture building.
With the Pope's recent apology and the Church's commitment to addressing its past, a chronicle of some of the Church's more unseemly deeds is more relevant than ever. What events in Christian history were remarkably un-Christian and how did the Church justify them? What can this tell us about the role of the Church today and its trajectory for the future?
The lecture has been organized by CommonSense , Princeton's freethought alliance.
