“Woolf Institute director Ed Kessler examines the rise of fundamentalists in the three main Abrahamic religions – Islam, Christianity and Judaism.
He talks to faith leaders and adherents among some of the more strictly observant – the Jewish Haredi, the Muslim Salafis and the Christian Pentacostalists. He tries to get a sense of what the term ‘fundamentalist’ means in the context of these religious movements – to many, it conjures up frightening images of violence but, in its true sense, fundamentalism is really only a return to the early tenets and practices of these religions.”
