An excellent panel of minds got together at Conway Hall’s latest #LondonThinks event last Thursday to discuss the theology and ethics of Star Wars films. You can watch it in full here on Youtube (below). Or open it in another window so you can scroll through the slides, made for the night out of Lego on my son’s Death Star, to illustrate various scenes of ethical conflict. And let me know what  you’d like to see in a future discussions. Thanks to Andrew Copson (British Humanist Association), Dr Matthew Sweet (cultural historian and broadcaster) and Professor Francesca Stavralopoulou (professor of Hebrew Bible and ancient religion at Exeter University).
