SJMB Lecture: “On Theoterrorism”



Theoterrorism means an individual’s/group’s calculated use of violence, or the threat of violence, against non-combatant/civilian targets, to inculcate a profound experience of terror and the sustained fear of re-experiencing that terror; it is intended to coerce or intimidate governments, societies, religious organizations, or individuals in the pursuit of theological goals, the fulfillment of theological mandates, or to impose adherence to theological ways-of-being on any who are read as a real or perceived threat to the theoterrorist individual/group.
