The Durham Catholic Theology Research Seminar is an occasional forum for scholarly discussion of pertinent issues in the Catholic traditions of theology and Church. It draws together people with specialist interests across the traditional theological disciplines (scriptural, historical, philosophical, systematic, liturgical, ethical and practical/pastoral) and social-scientific approaches.

Seminars are usually held on Thursday at 17:30 in Seminar Room B, Abbey House, Department of Theology and Religion, Palace Green, but please check the seminar details for exceptions.

There are no seminars in this series for the dates selected.

The Ushaw Lecture Series has been organised with the aim of promoting the archival material and heritage items held at Ushaw, the former Catholic seminary for the north of England. The lectures explore different aspects of Ushaw’s history and that of the Catholic community more generally, with expert contributors drawn from within and outside the university.

Lectures take place at Ushaw, 4 miles west of Durham City. Transport is available between Durham City and Ushaw; if you would like to take advantage of this, please register for your place at least 5 days in advance of the lecture and tell us at the time of booking.
