Britain’s foremost scholar of world religion Karen Armstrong talks about her acclaimed A History of God – an account of the troubled history of the three great monotheistic religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The work has just been republished in an illustrated Folio Society edition. Armstrong looks at the definitive role played in modern civilisation by the idea of a god through 4,000 years of the three religions.

Armstrong spent seven years as a Roman Catholic nun before going to university and then becoming a full-time writer and broadcaster. Her books include The Case for God, Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life and Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence. She is a winner of the TED prize and holder of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Medal. She also speaks about Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence on Thursday.
