The Challenge of Christian Animal Ethics by University of Victoria published on 2019-03-04T00:15:33Z How ought animals to be treated by humans? A rigorous engagement with the Christian tradition in relation to animals suggests some surprising answers. This lecture will address issues arising from the use humans make of other animals for food, for clothing, for labour, as research subjects, for sport and entertainment, and as pets or companions. It will also address human impacts on wild animals. David Clough is Professor of Theological Ethics at the University of Chester and recent President of the Society for the Study of Christian Ethics. His acclaimed two-volume monograph On Animals (2012, 2018) discusses the place of animals in Christian theology and ethics. He is the founder of CreatureKind (https://www.becreaturekind.org/), a project aiming to engage Christians with farmed animal welfare.
