    Start friday at 6 pm, end 2 pm Sunday Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre, 1046 Bristol Road, Birmingham, B29 6LJ

    In this conference we will explore our understanding of forgiveness from a range of religious, moral and psychological perspectives and in a range of situations.

    It is widely assumed, in religions and in societies more generally, that forgiveness is a ‘good thing’ and that we ‘ought’ to forgive (or at least try to forgive) those that offend against us. In this conference we will be examining this assumption in depth in order to deepen our understanding of forgiveness and how this may be reached.
