Morpeth Lecture 2017
Celebrating it’s 50th Anniversary, the Morpeth Lecture took place on Thursday 2 November at Christ Church Cathedral Newcastle NSW. Guest speaker Professor Terry Lovat addressed the topic: “Saving Islam from Jihadism: A Theological Analysis”.
The lecture explored the ease with which radical Islamist or Jihadist discourse has utilized Islamic sacred source material to promote its cause. The lecture attempted to present a more positive image of Islam by analysing the same material used by the Jihadists to show just how misplaced is their interpretation.
