• James Carroll's Constantine's Sword

A film screening of James Carroll's new documentary

3p.m., Tuesday, Nov.  6, 2007
C Walsh Theatre
55 Temple Street, Boston


The College of Arts & Sciences presents James Carroll's Constantine's Sword, a film screening of the new documentary by Oren Jacoby.  Constantine’s Sword is the story of James Carroll; a former Catholic priest on a journey to confront his past and uncover the roots of religiously inspired violence and war. His search also reveals a growing scandal involving religious infiltration of the U.S. military and the terrible consequences of religion’s influence on America’s foreign policy.

Carroll focuses on Christian antisemitism as the model for all religious hatred, exposing the cross as a symbol of a long history of violence against Jews (and, most recently, Moslems). The film brings the history of religious intolerance to life, tracing it as a source of the fanaticism that threatens the world today. At its core, Constantine’s Sword is a compelling personal narrative — a kind of detective story — as one man uncovers the dark areas of his own past, searching for a better future.

A reception will follow the event in the McDermott Conference Room.  This event is open to the Suffolk University Community. For more informaton, contact Nicole Vadnais, nvadnais@suffolk.edu
