The Christian Theology MPhil Pathway and Modules

The Faculty offers three modules in the MPhil within the Christian Theology pathway. In Michaelmas Term, 'The Christian God' looks at this foundational aspect of Christian faith and thought through engagement with four central figures from the theological tradition: currently Athanasius of Alexandria, John of Damascus, Friedrich Schleiermacher and Karl Barth. In Lent Term, two modules are offered. One, within the broad category of theology and literature, considers tragedy as a theological topic. The other, within the area of science and theology, looks at notions of materiality and embodiment.

Since modules can occasionally change from year to year, you may wish to speak to the coordinator of the Christian Theology MPhil pathway, , for details of provision in the future.
