Theology

We will train you in research methodologies and skills so that you can engage with key texts and sources, we can also help you develop expertise in biblical languages as well as Latin, patristic Greek and Aramaic if you need it. You will have the chance to take an interdisciplinary approach to Theology, which is increasing in popularity and importance with Research Councils. You might choose to exchange insights with disciplines like Philosophy, Anthropology, Sociology, Archaeology, Classics and Ancient History. We have a very active research culture with international scholars who are publishing cutting-edge research, we encourage interdisciplinary and collaborative research which is reflected in our projects. Our research focuses on the interaction between theology and matters of current social and political importance. Some of our specialist areas of interest include; The relationship of Christian theology with environmental concerns; Urban planning, criminal justice, international law, sexuality and gender, and the visual arts; Interfaith dialogue between the Abrahamic faiths; sacramental theology; Ecumenical theology, especially in Ireland; Christian theology and science We also operate the Exeter Centre for Ethics and Practical Theology (EXCEPT) which provides a centre for research into contextual, practical and ministerial theology. Our Network for Religion in Public Life promotes co-operation between academics and religious communities on matters concerning the relationship between religions and public and political issues.
