Sex and the Church

Led by Rev Prof Diarmaid MacCulloch and generously funded by a grant from the British Academy, this project explores changing attitudes to sex, gender, and marriage in Christianity. Plans for the project include an online database of materials, and research for a book on Sex and the Church to be published in 2024.
