Theology Faculty

Theology is one of the oldest faculties in this ancient University. One of the first courses of lectures given at Oxford was in Theology, over 800 years ago. Alexander Neckham, from St Albans, is recorded as giving biblical and moral lectures as early as 1193, on the Psalms of David and the Wisdom of Solomon. One of the first major University buildings was the Divinity School, which was begun in 1423 to cater for Theology lectures.
There are various Research Centres within the Theology Faculty: The Ian Ramsey Centre for Science and Religion, the Centre for the Reception History of the Bible, the Centre for the Study of Theology and Modern European Thought, and the McDonald Centre for Theology, Ethics and Public Life
