Study of Religions

The Study of Religions at Oxford covers a wide range of approaches to Jewish studies, to Hinduism, and to Islam (from historical and textual, to philosophical and theological, to sociological and ethnographic). There is also a strong interest in the Faculty in the social scientific study of religion– sociological, anthropological, and psychological – each with an important body of empirical studies and accompanying theories. Teaching in the Faculty draws on all three strands and has a strong interest both in the diversity of religious practices worldwide and in the history of their study.

  • Interdisciplinary Research Seminar in the Study of Religions
  • Research Seminar on the Abrahamic Religions

Further information on these programmes and the wide range of other events at the Faculty can be found here and also on the lecture list.
