Location: Online Zoom Webinar
At a 2017 Vatican conference, Pope Francis condemned nuclear weapons. A new book co-edited by the late Rev. Drew Christiansen, S.J., and Carole Sargent, Forbidden: Receiving Pope Francis's Condemnation of Nuclear Weapons (2023), grapples with how we should deal with the pope’s rejection of nuclear weapons today. This webinar drew on moral, religious, military, and political perspectives to address this urgent issue. The conversation was particularly intended to provide context for policymakers, military professionals, ordinary citizens, and church pastoral workers who assist them in making decisions on matters related to nuclear strategy and disarmament.
This event was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University; Catholic Peacebuilding Network; the Center on Religion and Culture at Fordham University; Georgetown University Press; and the Institute for Policy Research and Catholic Studies at the Catholic University of America.
This book is part of the Project on Revitalizing Catholic Engagement on Nuclear Disarmament.
