Philosophy and Religion

Having developed out from the Theology Faculty, one of the concerns of OCHS has been comparative Theology. This research field intends to include comparative religion within its remit and seeks to examine the ways in which Hindu thought can interact with non-Hindu philosophies and theologies. This research area partly grows out of the successful comparative seminars and conferences held at OCHS between Islam, Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism, and builds on the work of Prof F. X. Clooney who has written extensively on comparative theology.
