The Department of Theology and Religion has an outstanding international reputation, spanning the formation and development of the foundational texts and manuscripts of Judaism, Christianity and Islam to their interpretation in feminist, ethical, theological, philosophical and environmental perspectives alongside specialisms in Sikhism, Jainism, interfaith engagement, and the study of lived religion and its impact on society. It is at the interface of religion and society that teachers and researchers have made a wider impact and changed the way governments and public bodies nationally and internationally engage with faith communities, including during the Covid pandemic.
