The Sacred and the Secular: Conflict and the Creation of a Moral World

Lecture by Dr. Philippe Buc, of the University of Vienna.

Buc's research focuses on religion and power in pre modern western Europe, from the 2nd to the 14th century. He is the author of two books, "L'ambiguite du Livre. Prince, pouvoir et peuple dans les commentaires de la Bible" ("The Ambiguity of the Book. Prince, Power, and the People in Biblical Commentaries") and "Dangers of Ritual." He is now researching and writing a third book that looks at holy war, martyrdom, and terror.
