“Order. Men despise religion. They hate it and are afraid it may be true. The cure for this is first to show that religion is not contrary to reason, but worthy of reverence and respect. Next make it attractive, make good men wish it were true, and then show that it is. Worthy of reverence because it really understands human nature. Attractive because it promises true good.”
(From Pensees by Blaise Pascal first published January 1670)
Trinity Forum Europe was founded to ask important questions on life, culture and ethics through Christianity.
At Oxford, Cambridge, Edinburgh, St Andrews, London and in 2023 Westminster and Aberdeen these faith based Forums and Scriptoriums were established to create a deeper sense of community.
Scriptorium, from the Latin scriptorium or scriptorius meaning pertaining to writing, are rooms for prayer and study and in a theological context were most often found in a monastery. In medieval times they were the place where the copying and the illumination of manuscripts took place.
As a result of the pandemic Trinity Forum Europe went online with fascinating theological thinkers, writers and academics from all around the world communicating via Zoom. These online events now take place fortnightly during term time in combination with one or two in person events every term.
