Centre for Spirituality, Theology & Health
Welcome to the home page of the Durham University Centre for Spirituality, Theology & Health. The Centre engages in interdisciplinary and interprofessional research and educational activities which are collaborative within Durham University and with external partners. It seeks especially to engage theologically with issues relevent to clinical and pastoral practice in relation to spirituality and health. Whilst this engagement is primarily undertaken within the Judeo-Christian tradition, we welcome partnership and conversation with people of all faiths and none. We believe that critical theological engagement with contemporary issues in healthcare is important for the benefit of Christian churches, other faith traditions, and wider society. Whilst we have an especial concern for promoting better care of those who are unwell, our interests also include a desire for improved understanding of human flourishing in all its aspects, and especially the practice of spirituality.
