Noesis is a forum for graduates of the University of Cambridge, particularly those working in the areas of philosophical and systematic theology. Historically, Noesis has explored the intersection of theology, philosophy, and poetics, including literature, the visual arts, and music; in addition to editing an annual journal, the team also runs a termly seminar that is open to the public.

The Noesis Review: Our annual journal showcases essays, prose, and verse of 500-2,000 words by graduate students (and perhaps some visual art). Though the journal focuses on the meeting place of theology, philosophy, and poetics, it is open to submissions in those broader subject areas. Submissions are considered throughout the year, and contributors may be connected to any faculty.

Final Deadline for Submissions: 15 March

Please send abstracts (150 words) to

Submissions might include:

  • an essay examining the interplay between theology, philosophy, and poetics, including literature, the visual arts, and music.
  • theological and philosophical commentary on recent publications

  • any creative or exploratory writing with philosophical or theological import. 
  • an interesting footnote you want to expand
