The Just War Tradition

March 20th, 2024

Have you ever wondered if King Arthur was justified in cutting off all four limbs of Monty Python’s Black Knight when he refused the king passage? If so, you’ll want to listen to this episode of LBE with Eric Patterson. Eric is an author, an important leader in Washington, D.C., and an expert in the theology and history of the Just War Tradition. What are the right reasons for going to war? How should a just war be fought? Was the American Revolution a just war (or even a revolution)? What about the firebombing of Dresden in World War II? Join Kevin and Eric as they try to apply the insights of the Just War Tradition to military conflicts past and present.
