Research and Impact

The Department is a world-leading centre for research, scholarship and postgraduate development within the cross-disciplinary field of Theology and Religion. Because this field is broad and complex – comprising the pervasive human tendency to form fundamental beliefs about divinity, the universe and the human good – the Department regards interdisciplinary method as essential and maintains a collegial, collaborative research culture.  It has a distinctive ethos, characterised by open, critical but sympathetic attention to multiple religious traditions. Its research includes critical textual, historical, theological and social scientific methods, applied within the three fields of Biblical Studies, Christian Theology and the Study of Religion.
