Papers given at the International Consultation ‘Love in Religion: The Cutting-Edge Issues’ now available online

We are delighted to announce that several of the papers given at our International Consultation ‘Love in Religion: The Cutting-Edge Issues’, which took place in November 2016 at Regent’s Park College, are now available on this website, in our ‘Resources’ section.

These papers represent the insights of scholars from a range of religious traditions and academic disciplines, all responding to the question ‘What do you believe to be the “frontier” or “cutting-edge” research issues on the topic of the place of love – both divine and human – in religion, as seen from the perspective of your particular discipline?’

We will be posting more papers in the coming weeks – watch this space!
