Research in Theology and Religion

The Department is one of the leading centres internationally for research into theology and religion, with our research organised around four core themes: texts and manuscripts (Judaism, Christianity and Islam); theology; Islamic studies; and lived religion and its impact on society nationally and globally.

Across these themes the Department hosts several research centres and major projects including: Christian-Muslim relations; Shii networks in the Middle East and Europe; New Testament manuscripts; fostering resilience in international development; freedom of religion and belief; and public perceptions of science and religion.
