The School of Divinity has an internationally renowned staff and a reputation for high quality in both teaching and research. Its primary expertise is as a centre engaging with theological and historical concerns, chiefly as raised and developed within the Christian tradition, its Jewish roots, and related critical scholarship. The School's academic staff seek to address wider concerns arising within western society through the growing prominence of other religious traditions and the rejuvenation of interest in questions of 'spirituality'.
