WACO (September 25, 2012)--A lecture Tuesday will explore the moral world of Gotham City and the late Roman Empire through the lens of Batman and St. Augustine.

“Visiting Distinguished Professor of Religion and Public Life Jean Bethke Elshtain, Ph.D. will argue that condemning the film for rousing the shooter to action is a terrible misunderstanding of Batman’s moral world and that St. Augustine pierces through the darkness and assists us in orienting ourselves to the light,” a university spokesperson said.

The lecture will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the Baylor Sciences Building, Room D110.
