We are excited to announce that writer and broadcaster, Richard Holloway will be delivering our seventh Annual Lecture on The Politics of Forgiveness.
Forgiveness is normally associated with the experience of individuals and the ebb and flow of their personal relationships. But it is arguable that forgiveness – or its lack – at the institutional or political level is even more important for the health of the human community.
In his lecture, Richard will offer a wide-ranging interpretation of the complexity of the human condition and the fundamental importance of forgiveness to the sustaining of its social and political institutions. And he will argue that there has rarely been a time when it is more needed than today.
Richard Holloway is the author of thirty books, including A Little History of Religion, On Forgiveness, Godless Morality, and Between the Monster and the Saint. He was Bishop of Edinburgh and Primus of the Scottish Episcopal Church until he stood down in 2000. A frequent broadcaster, he has presented a number of television series and regularly presents Sunday Morning with Richard Holloway for BBC Radio Scotland.
