Ethics of War Lecture Attracts Great Interest

By Lynn Glanville

Ethics of War Lecture

A stimulating open event on the theme of ‘The Ethics of War’ –
organised by the Church of Ireland’s Historical Centenaries Working
Group as a distinctive Church of Ireland contribution to the
commemoration of the one hundredth anniversary of the outbreak of the
First World War – was held last night (19 November 2014) in the Music
Room of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin.

A large audience gathered to hear Professor Nigel Biggar of the University of Oxford speak on the theme based on his recent book In Defence of War, to which Professor Keith Jeffery of Queen’s University, Belfast responded, referring to his historical research. The event was chaired by the historian Professor David Hayton who opened up lively debate and discussion to those attending.

A fuller report of the event will be published in next week’s edition of the Church of Ireland Gazette.
