Course summary

Research in Theology and Religious Studies encompasses a wide range of traditions, methods and perspectives and has been an ever-present part of the mission of the University since its foundation in 1451.


Researchers in Theology and Religious Studies continue to build on Glasgow's reputation for excellence in traditional fields of theology including Biblical Studies, Hermeneutics, Modern Systematic Theology, Catholic Moral Theology, Practical Theology, Church History and Scottish Religious History. Glasgow also has a strong profile in Islam, Sufism, religion in modern Iran, Judaism, Esoteric Buddhism, Jewish Studies, and religion in China.

Some staff are primarily theologians, whilst others work at the intersection between religion and other disciplines including sociology, anthropology, literature, history. Theology and Religious Studies in Glasgow has strong interdisciplinary research links to other subjects across the College of Arts. Recent collaborations have involved English and Scottish Literature, Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Law, Education, Philosophy, Medical Humanities and several Glasgow Museums.

Our main collective research topics are:

  • religion and politics
  • the construction of religion as a modern category
  • religion and technology
  • mysticism and spirituality
  • religion and identity
  • scripts, scriptures, and textual analysis
  • applied theology and theory of religion.
