The study of religion is the study of a rich and fascinating dimension of human experience that goes beyond an exploration of beliefs and ritual practices. Join Harvard Divinity School Professor Diane L. Moore at the Harvard Ed Portal as part of the Faculty Speaker Series. Join Moore as she examines how religions are internally diverse, how they evolve and change through time, and how religions are embedded in all dimensions of human experience. She’ll discuss the beliefs and principles of various religions through the lens of scripture and through themes such as gender and sexuality, the arts, violence and peace, science, and power and authority.

The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP online through Eventbrite.

Watch the event live on Livestream starting at 6:30pmEST.
