Being Human: a festival of humanities - Your Money or Your After-Life

19th November 2015, 19:00 to 21:00, Durham Cathedral, Prior’s Hall

‘Your Money or Your After-Life: Forum’ is an open discussion forum led by Durham Cathedral. The forum will bring together international researchers from history, archaeology, anthropology and religious studies, and representatives from different faith and denominational communities. The subject of gift and offering in different religious traditions will be explored, and the wider implications of these practices for community growth, for heritage management, and for spiritual life. How religious institutions are supported, how this is connected to conceptions of the after-life, and the place of money within religious life (or not) are the questions to be considered. The forum will include question and answer interaction from the audience, as well as short presentations from a variety of perspectives.

This is a free event: but you will need to get hold of a ticket. These will be available from the World Heritage Visitor Centre, Durham.
