Loyola Institute

The Loyola Institute is dedicated to education and research in theology in the Catholic tradition. Dr Cornelius J Casey BA (Hons), STL, DPhil Oxon, was appointed its inaugural Director. His current research interests include the theology of Thomas Aquinas, (particularly contemporary analytic readings of Aquinas), the Philosophical Explorations of Medieval Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, current issues in Ecclesiology, and contemporary Hindu-Christian interchange.

The Loyola Institute is currently appointing staff in Hebrew Bible and Systematic Theology, as well as the Loyola Professorship of Theology. Teaching programmes at all levels will be grounded in research, with a particular focus on contemporary issues. Specific areas of research supervision will be posted on the webpage once the appointments have been made.
