This is last minute, I know. But if you’re looking for something to do tonight, there’s a lecture at the University of Mary Washington. It will feature Martin Marty and Seyyed Hossein Nasr. And they’ll talk about Thomas Jefferson’s Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom. Specifically, they’ll talk about how the statute relates to the Christian and Muslim faiths.
Annually, the university’s department of classics, philosophy and religion celebrates the anniversary of the statute with a talk on religious freedom. This year, professors wanted speakers to focus on the statute itself.
The lecture will be at the Dodd Auditorium in George Washington Hall at UMW. It will be at 7:30 p.m.
