The School of PRHS is a diverse and vibrant community specialising in philosophy, applied ethics, theology and religious studies, and the history and philosophy of science.

This project has five interdisciplinary research teams, made up of psychologists and theologians, at different UK universities (and one collaborator based in Australia). Each project investigates the relationship between language difference (e.g., aphasia, autism, dyslexia, multilingualism, etc.) and spiritual flourishing (e.g., sense of belonging within a religious community, ability to understand sacred texts or navigate ethical challenges).
