Philosophers Café: The Freedom Series - The Blood Red Horse of the Apocalypse: Russia’s War in Ukraine

The second horse of the apocalypse is running rampant across Ukraine. How is war ‘justified’ by President Putin and Patriarch Kirill, head of the Russian Orthodox Church? What has Patriarch Kirill said to the Russian people, his parishes in Ukraine, in North American and around the world? How has the Prince of Peace been used as justification for the advance of the blood red horse and the rise of “Christian Nationalism”? Join in timely conversation on Christian tradition, nationalism and war.

David Goa is the founding director and International Fellow of the Chester Ronning Centre for the Study of Religion and Public Life, University of Alberta (Augustana Campus).  Previously, he was Curator of Folklife & Head of Collections for the Provincial Museum of Alberta.  He built the program for the study of culture at the Royal Alberta Museum based on field research in a full range of religious communities including Hindu, Buddhist, Sikh, Jewish, Muslim, and Christian in Canada.  His many honours and awards include awards City of Edmonton Cultural Hall of Fame, Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal and Premier’s Gold Medal for ‘Anno Domini’ (public exhibition and book).
