The Return of the Sacred in an Age of Terror
  • Please join us for a stimulating and challenging address by David Tacey hosted by the Eremos Institute.
  • Is it mere coincidence, or is there some synchronicity between the return of the sacred and religious terrorism? 

    Who would have thought, even a generation ago, that secular thinkers would be speaking of a ‘return of the sacred’ in the West? But sociologists and philosophers are now speaking in these terms, suggesting it is an extraordinary time to be alive. However, traditional religions appear to be among the last to know about these changes. They are still in defensive mode, reacting to the anti-religious temper of the Enlightenment. The West has moved on, and finds itself in a new existential situation. However, as the West struggles to understand its new relation to the sacred, it does so in the context of religious terrorism. How, and why, are these things related?
