A lecture by Prof. Remi Brague (the Sorbonne)

Free and open to the public.

Lecture Description:

How did Christianity change the course of thinking about ethics? What are its implications and in what ways did it bring a moral revolution to the world? Join Rémi Brague as he discusses how Christianity did not add any new commandment to the Bible, but contented itself with rational Law, deepening it and enlarging the field in which its rulings obtain.
