Theology scholars at Glasgow University have been warned that when studying Christ’s crucifixion there could be “graphic scenes”.

And professors have been instructed to cushion the blow that Jesus’s death was quite violent.

STUDY: Students are being told to prepare for scenes in their Bible study class
The alert is just one of a range of so-called “trigger warnings” being issued for college courses in a new wave of political correctness.

Students of forensic science at Strathclyde University get a “verbal warning” before lectures when they might see something gory – though they will have to handle grisly murder scenes for a living after they graduate.

 

“Universities are meant to be a place where concepts are challenged”

And archaeology students at Stirling University who could find themselves digging up ancient burial sites are also told they may find an image of a well preserved body “a bit gruesome”.

Scottish Tory education spokeswoman Liz Smith said: “Universities are meant to be a place where concepts are challenged.

“That will become increasingly difficult if they ensure everything survives the politically-correct test.”

A spokesman for Glasgow University said: “We have an absolute duty of care to all our students.”
