Writer, broadcaster and former Bishop of Edinburgh Richard Holloway will be interviewed in Aberdeen this month.
The discussion will look at how religious ideas and moral issues are conveyed on television and other media, covering topics such as faith in a post-Christian age, homosexuality and the Anglican Church, the problem of evil, and the moral problems arising from the economic crisis.
Holloway will be interviewed by the university's chair of practical theology, John Swinton, at the University of Aberdeen, in King's College Chapel on February 23, at 6pm. Professor Swinton said that "while often viewed as a controversial figure, Richard Holloway is a vital and provocative commentator on our times".
The public event is part of Aberdeen University's film series, which has brought a host of prominent filmmakers and broadcasters such as Sir David Attenborough, Nicolas Roeg, Raul Ruiz, Allan Shiach, John Akomfrah to the city.
