Karen Armstrong talked about her book, Fields of Blood: Religion and the History of Violence, in which she examines the intertwined relationship of faith and violence by walking through the history of every major religion, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism and Daoism. In her book, she argues that all religions developed in agrarian societies in which landowners battled each other for power and oppressed peasants who eventually rebelled. The “warrior ethos,” she argued, has therefore always been linked with observing a faith. She talked by remote video from New York City with Sally Quinn, founding editor of the blog, “OnFaith.” close
