Loyola to premiere documentary 'God in America'

Loyola press release - October 4, 2010

Loyola University New Orleans will host the television premiere of the documentary series “God in America: The 400-year struggle for the soul of our nation” at 7 p.m., Oct. 6, in Roussel Hall. The special screening chronicles how religion shaped public life in America. Presented by PBS’ “American Experience” and “FRONTLINE,” the series covers four hundred years of American religious history ranging from the story of the Europeans who brought their religious traditions to the New World to the modern struggle between secular and religious cultures.

The event, co-sponsored by the Twomey Center for Peace through Justice and WYES-TV, explores how the quest for religious liberty created a vibrant spiritual marketplace that made the country the most religiously diverse nation on earth. A discussion will follow the screening.

For those who cannot attend, “God in America: The 400-year struggle for the soul of our nation” series can be seen beginning Oct. 11 on WYES-TV.
