The Institute for Religion and Critical Inquiry’s Rome seminar series commenced in September 2015, when ACU’s Rome Campus was opened. The series has drawn together international scholars to discuss critical questions in religion and theology from multidisciplinary perspectives.

Providing a collaborative space to craft ideas in conversation with other researchers, the seminars are a practical expression of our ongoing commitment to world-leading research. Research arising from the seminars has been published or accepted for publication by high-quality journals and publishers such as Theological Studies, Modern Theology, Bloomsbury and De Gruyter.

Please note: Due to covid-19 the Rome seminars scheduled for 2020 will be rescheduled once international travel bans are lifted.
