5: Zealot's Axe
Play • 17 min

Hundreds of years ago a man dressed as a bear murdered a Catholic freedom fighter in Switzerland. The details of the crime are somewhat important, but more so are the details of a Protestant pastor who converted to Catholicism on account of his idea of authority and power.

The crime stemmed from a time fraught with religious division during which moderation seemed extinct.

It's a sharp contrast to today, of course, where it's not uncommon for Christian denominations to pray together, and discuss the faith from their own perspectives.

In this episode we explore the life and death of Swiss pastor and fighter Joerg Jenatsch, and think a little about praying together nowadays.
