About the Centre
Durham University has long been home to a distinguished tradition of scholarship on Anglicanism and the Anglican Communion. The Michael Ramsey Centre for Anglican Studies was formed in 2016 in order to co-ordinate and develop this world-leading specialism, with its founding members drawn from the departments of Theology and Religion, History, and the School of Government and International Affairs.
Among the Centre’s principal research strengths are Anglican theology, Anglican history and identity, Anglican education and training, global Anglican unity and diversity, empirical approaches to ecclesiology, Anglicanism and politics, and Anglicanism and conflict in the modern world. In connection with these themes, members of the Centre are engaged in a wide range of individual and collaborative research projects, consultancy and impact work- locally, internationally and globally.
The Centre supports these activities through a varied annual programme of lectures and seminars, many of which are open to the wider public (please visit the Lectures, Seminars and Events page for further information about past and future events).
