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 world-leading scholars in philosophy and religion to discuss critical questions in their respective disciplines.

Providing a collaborative space to craft ideas in conversation with other researchers, the seminars are a practical expression of our ongoing commitment to innovative, high-quality, international research collaboration in the disciplines of philosophy and theology. 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.
