Michael Ramsey Centre for Anglican Studies

Created in 2016, this new interdisciplinary Centre is based in the Department of Theology and Religion, and works in collaboration with scholars in English Studies, History, and Music, and in partnership with Durham Cathedral. The purpose of the Centre is to investigate the rich diversity of Anglican traditions as global religious, artistic, and political phenomena. For more information please visit the Michael Ramsey Centre for Anglican Studies.

Centre for Catholic Studies

The Department is delighted to announce the dual establishment of the UK's first Centre for Catholic Studies within the mainstream, fully public academy and, with this, the UK's first permanently endowed Chair of Catholic theology, the Bede Chair of Catholic Theology.

Centre for Death and Life Studies

The Centre exists to foster and conduct research into life-values, beliefs, and practices that relate to living and dying. It seeks to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary approaches wherever possible between the humanities, the social and life-sciences and medicine. It also benefits from the support of Durham University's Institute of Advanced Study. For more information, please visit the centre's website.
