Faculty of Divinity



Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme convenes a regular seminar on Inter-religious Relations. The range of speakers includes visiting scholars, guests, and researchers from the Faculty of Divinity. All are welcome to attend. 


Information for Autumn 2021

During the 2021 Michaelmas term (October-December), seminars will be held on Tuesdays at 2:15pm in the Lightfoot Room at the Faculty of Divinity, West Road, CB3 9DP. 

As part of COVID-mitigation measures for this venue, those on site should wear masks, unless speaking or drinking. The venue has a capacity of 35.

Seminars will be livestreamed. Those who wish to join us online should sign up in advance via Eventbrite

Please note: During the livestream, the camera will focus on the person who is speaking—whether that’s the chair, speaker, respondent or those in the audience putting questions. It also displays a 360-degree image of the room. Those uncomfortable with appearing on camera may prefer to join via the livestream.
