There is a chance to see Catholic Melchite Archbishop Elias Chacour of Galilee, in Edinburgh next month, when he speaks  on 'The Promise of the Promised Land' at St Mary’s RC Cathedral on 20 August at 7.30pm.

The lecture is part of the city's ecumenical Festival of Spirituality and Peace which runs from 7-30 August.

Archbishop Elias Chacour of Galilee is working to create his own biblical vision of the Holy Land, in which people of all faiths live together in peace. Named ‘Man of the Year’ in Israel in 2001, his advocacy of non-violence and his inspirational work and teaching give grounds for believing that if we can live by the Golden Rule, common to all faiths, we can reach the promised land of peace.
