Graham Ward, Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University, delivered the 2013 Morpeth Lecture Why Believe? on Tuesday 23 July.
To have beliefs is a characteristic of being human. In this lecture Professor Graham Ward examined the nature of believing itself, the signs of its origins both in human prehistory and contemporary investigations into neuroscience. He also examined the way this anthropological condition relates to religious traditions and faith, emotional life and social organisation.
