“SHOULD WE BE RELIGIOUS” LITTAUER LECTURE SLATED FOR MARCH 8 AT MARLBORO COLLEGE

MARLBORO, VERMONT – Has religion been more beneficial than harmful in human history? Is religion necessary, or is religion an aspect of humankind’s childhood which we should now outgrow?

Ordained Minister and former Marlboro College professor James E. “Jet” Thomas will pose and attempt to answer these questions and more in a talk, “Should We Be Religious?” slated for Monday, March 8, at 7 p.m. in the Whittemore Theater at Marlboro College.

Thomas’ return to campus after 30 years of teaching there comes as part of the college’s Monday Night Lecture and Littauer Lecture series.

Thomas, an ordained minister, has studied at the College of William and Mary, Harvard Divinity School and Claremont Graduate University. He has studied religion around the world, including in South Asia, India, and North Africa.

The Littauer Lecture Series, funded by the Lucius N. Littauer Foundation, focuses on religion. All Littauer lectures are free and open to the public and the Whittemore Theater is located on the Marlboro College Marlboro campus. The theater is fully assessible. Seating is first come, first served and there are no tickets for this event.
