Institute for Religion & Critical Inquiry

Reflecting critically on religion in conversation with philosophy, theology, history, and literature

The IRCI fosters interdisciplinary research into the relation between religion and culture, past and present.

The IRCI promotes collaborative research on religion from multiple disciplinary perspectives, including philosophy, theology, history, and literature. Focusing on Christian thought and practice from antiquity to today, we explore inter-relationships between religion and its cultural contexts, and contribute to contemporary theological, philosophical, ethical, and political debates. In this way, the IRCI aims to advance understanding of our world and imagine ways to improve it.
