Title: In-Person Event: Thomas Jefferson and Religion
Contact: Sarah,
Location: Jacksonville Public Library Meeting Room
Description: Thomas Jefferson's religious beliefs have long been a subject of public discussion, and were a critical topic in several of his important political campaigns as he was viciously and unfairly attacked for alleged atheism. Care must be taken in evaluating Jefferson's statements because many comments with literal religious significance must be understood in the context of social convention as much as theology. David G. McGraw M.Ed. will act the part of the real Mr. Jefferson in a historically accurate portrayal of Thomas Jefferson's beliefs surrounding religion. Join the library for this in-person presentation on Tuesday, July 27 at 6:30 p.m. No registration required.
