Ian Ramsey Centre

The Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion (IRC) conducts research into religious beliefs and theological concepts in relation to the sciences. Research into beliefs focuses on the application of scientific tools to religious phenomena, such as in the Cognitive Science of Religion (CSR).

I was told when I started as a DPhil student in Theology, specialising in Science and Religion, that the university experience should be that of a garden, not a machine. It has brought me a lot of joy to discover that this statement is true of our graduate programme and of Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion. I am inspired by many members of our Faculty and fellow graduate students who pursue intellectually rigorous research with a stance of wonder.
