VIOLENCE AND WESTERN RELIGIONS
Western religious beliefs, Judaeo-Christian and Islamic, have been employed in legitimating violence (the just war theory) and even in promoting its use (crusades, jihad). These beliefs have also been a principal source of condemning violence (pacifism, conscientious objection, anti-war declarations and protests). This tension will be examined historically and thematically.
