Prof Wendy Mayer on ‘Narrative Patterns in Religious Conflict’ Video

Wendy Mayer is an Australian scholar of late antiquity and religion, associate dean for research at Australian Lutheran College, and dean of research strategy for the University of Divinity. Wendy is known internationally for her research on early Christian preaching and the life and works of John Chrysostom. Her research currently embraces Greek medicine in Christian thought in Late Antiquity; and the root causes of religious conflict and radicalisation in both past and present.What role do the stories that religious communities tell themselves about the past play in present and future religious conflict? Using recent research in the cognitive sciences, Wendy describes three narrative patterns that can be identified and explain why they matter. This research can prove helpful for understanding why groups clash and why, when a religious community divides, each group can find it so difficult to understand the other.Watch | Prof Wendy Mayer on ‘Narrative Patterns in Religious Conflict’ https://vox.divinity.edu.au/research/watch-prof-wendy-mayer-on-narrative-patterns-in-religious-conflict/
