‘Love in a Time of Terror’ with Dr James Alison at Trinity College Theological College Melbourne on the 6th of October from 6.30 - 8.00pm Abstract: In an age marked by terrorism, much focus is placed on the efforts of police, military and intelligence to prevent or counter violence. But what role is there for love in an age marked by extremist violence? What is erotic love? What is agapeic love? What is “romantic” love? And how can love be understood within a theological anthropology, using René Girard’s mimetic theory? Biographical information: Dr. James Alison is an internationally acclaimed Catholic theologian, and author of numerous books, including The Joy of Being Wrong, Raising Abel, Knowing Jesus, Faith Beyond Resentment, Undergoing God, and Jesus the Forgiving Victim.
