Ford Hall Forum Presents "Constantine's Sword"

10/30/2008

Ford Hall Forum at Suffolk University presents author James Carroll, a Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence at the Collge of Arts and Sciences, for a screening and discussion of the film Constantine's Sword.

The film, from Oscar-nominated documentarian Oren Jacoby, follows Carroll, a Boston Globe columnist and author of the forthcoming book Practicing Catholic, in his search for answers to questions about why intolerance, violence, and war are so deeply ingrained in religion.

Looking to his own past and that of his religion, Carroll addresses the darker side of Christianity and explores the consequences of the religion's influence on U.S. foreign policy.

The lecture and screening will take place 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, 2008, at the C. Walsh Theater, Suffolk University. Ford Hall Forum events are free and open to the public.

Equal time will be provided for the speakers' remarks and questions from the audience.
