Holy War: Lessons From the East

Tuesday, January 24th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room
Mark Albertson
Jihad is an Arabic term meaning “struggle.” For Muslims, this is an internal struggle in which followers surrender to God. However, the popular notion of Jihad held by many non-believers is that of “Holy War.” Join Mark Albertson for this four-part series: a progression of talks that will seek to peel away the confusion, misconceptions, and propagandistic perversions of the Jihadi movement and of the globe’s most fascinating, yet misunderstood religions.

In the first of this four-part series Mark Albertson will discuss the prophet Muhammad and the orgins of the religion of Islam. The lecture will explore the expansion of Islam across an empire and the conversion of millions of peoples. The discussion will conclude with Muhammad’s death and the seeds it planted for discord resulting in the Sunni-Shia conflict.
