The 2011 Attacks in Norway: LinksEnglish
This paper was compiled on the morning of Tuesday 26 July. It contains links to a small selection of the thousands of articles, commentaries and blogs that were been published on the internet over the following days.
It starts by recalling the assumptions and speculations in media coverage on Friday 22 July. It then continues by recalling the discussions which developed on the subsequent two days, when the world found out who had really been responsible for the attacks.
What was the relationship between Breivik’s ideology and his actions? Was he driven by personal factors as much as, or more than, by ideological factors? What are the features and causes of Islamophobia, and what is the connection between Islamophobia and
other kinds of anxiety and fear, other feelings of threat and insecurity? Were some of Breivik’s ideas right even though his actions were wrong?
The paper draws to an end with links to three writers in Scandinavia and with reference to an article naming and remembering some of those who have been killed or are missing, or who are grieving. The last link is to a broadcast talk by Michael Morpurgo.

Scriptural ReasoningEnglish, Peter Ochs
Scriptural Reasoning (SR) represents a text study between Christians, Muslims and Jews. It is a practice whereby members of these faiths, in small groups, study together their own and each other’s sacred scriptures. The space created by the three faiths in study together is often likened to the Biblical ‘Tent of Meeting’.
This website is intended as a resource to help all those from the growing Scriptural Reasoning community who wish to make the journey of learning about each other's faiths together.
