The Study of Religion and Violence

REligious symbols and hands

Religion is often misused in the pursuit of prejudice, stereotyping, and violence. Our on-going study explores the causes of such misuse as we seek remedies that are practical and immediate. We are especially concerned with “sacred” writings that are used to support the domination of women and children. Our Institute seeks to empower people to take charge of their lives in the pursuit of their human dignity.
