Event Details

     What
role do robots and technology play in religion? That’s the question Ilona Nord
will be answering at Luther College at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, in the Center
for Faith and Life Recital Hall.

      Nord comes from Würzburg, Germany,
where
she
teaches religious education and didactics of religious education at the
University of
Würzburg.  Her lecture will explore the use of internet
and artificial intelligence in religious services, including the recent
ordination of a robot priest in Kyoto, Japan.

            “This
talk explores the use of cutting-edge technology in religious practice as a
response to the increased technologization of our lives. The talk provides a
window into new possibilities and the religious life of the future,” said
Gereon Kopf, professor of religion at Luther College.

            The
lecture is open to the public with no charge for admission.

Luther College is home to
more than 1,900 undergraduates who explore big questions and take action to
benefit people, communities and society. Our 60 academic programs,
