The Widening Horizons in Philosophical Theology project announces new funding opportunities.

Interactions between Christian thinkers and continental philosophy often have a critical focus, whether on the intellectual debt continental philosophers owe to the Christian tradition, or on the ways secular philosophers critique classical theological accounts of ultimate reality. The newly-funded Widening Horizons in Philosophical Theology project at the University of St Andrews focuses on the joint potential of theology and continental philosophy for discovery and growth, using the intellectual resources continental philosophy makes available to open new horizons in philosophical theology.

Widening Horizons is offering twelve grants for research projects that advance this constructive aim. Applications may be for

  • small projects of up to £60,000 (including c. £8,000 fixed costs); or
  • large projects of up to £160,000 (including c. £23,000 fixed costs).

Projects should start between 1st October 2021 and 1st March 2022, and end between 30th September 2023 and 28th February 2024. Most activities may be concentrated within a shorter period if desired.

The call for proposals for these projects is now open until 31 May 2021 (17:00 BST). Application details and further information can be found at:

Details about the wider multi-year project can be found here.

Analyzing Theology Series – Call for Monograph Proposals in Analytic & Systematic Theology.

Analyzing Theology is a series of short (i.e., sub 70,000 word) entry level monographs in Christian theology being published with Wipf and Stock. The series showcases work in analytic and systematic theology from world-leading scholars. Monographs in the series are aimed at: (i) introducing cutting-edge analytic and systematic theology, (ii) providing a platform for original contributions in analytic and systematic theology, and, (iii) connecting questions of theoretical significance to theology with the practices of actual theological communities.

There are forthcoming volumes in the series by Nicholas Wolterstorff, Eleonore Stump and Joshua Cockayne.

The series is being edited by Joshua Cockayne and Jonathan Rutledge. If you are interested in submitting a proposal contact Joshua Cockayne ( or Jonathan Rutldege (

Open Theology – Call for Papers: “Death and Religion.”

The theological journal, Open Theology invites submissions for the topical issue – “Death and Religion”. (

Edited by: Khyati Tripathi, (UPES, India), Jennifer Moran Stritch (Limerick Institute of Technology, Ireland) and Peter G.A.Versteeg (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, The Netherlands).


    Death and religion share an interdependent relation. Where death is an event or state that threatens to disintegrate worlds and meaning, religion can be seen as a practice that categorizes, consoles and makes sense of this kind of disintegration. According to Oxford dictionary, death is defined as “end of life”, but behind this simple definition, there is a web of complex ideas that could be understood from not just biological but also religious or cultural perspectives. Death has been conceptualized differently in different religious traditions as their texts and practices demonstrate. According to Lifton, religion is ‘life power’ and dominates death. Similarly, Davies put forth rituals as culture’s ‘words against death’.

     The relationship between death and religion should be seen as a broad scholarly query, which includes philosophical and theological questions, as well as more applied perspectives such as social work. Although death is a clinical process of organs that cease to function, dying and death are events that are surrounded by various sense-making practices, ranging from intricate traditional ceremonies as part of established religious repertoires, to more personal, individualized rituals. Social-cultural context, therefore, is of utmost importance to understand how we interact with dying persons and dead bodies, and why we do it in that particular way.

    In theology we see how faith traditions historically account for the reality of death, reflecting upon its existential meaning and thus trying to understand how to deal with the event of death. As such, a theology of death raises both practical (e.g. in spiritual care) and systematical (e.g. in ethics) questions regarding death and dying. 

     In psychology death anxiety or fear of death invited a great deal of interest starting in the late 1950s with Fiefel’s work on death anxiety and religion. Different studies pointed at different relationships between death anxiety and religiousness; some studies found a positive relationship between the two while others found an inverse relationship.  Some research argued for a curvilinear relationship between death anxiety and religiousness, explaining that moderately religious participants have more death anxiety than those who are extremely religious or not religious at all. The relationship between religion and death anxiety has been an inconclusive one because of the multidimensional nature of both religion and death anxiety. There is, however, a lack of scholarship on death anxiety and religion in non-western cultures.

    In cultural anthropology, death studies have developed into a substantial research niche. There has been ample attention for practices pertaining to e.g. the process of dying, death as transition, as well as to the interaction with the dead body. Important here, too, is the global perspective on death, also in the sense of engaging with ontologies of life and death outside of the established scientific-medical spectrum.

    This special issue encourages scholars from different disciplines, not just restricted to the ones we mentioned, to contribute to this debate. Of special interest are situations in which religion becomes overbearing and a burden to carry forward in times of death, or if religious practices are obstructed, for example, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. How do these crisis situations affect the relationship between religion and death? This special issue aims at invoking curiosity, enquiry and interest in looking at the different facets of this topic.

     The special issue on ‘Death and Religion’ invites empirical (qualitative and quantitative), review/conceptual and analytical papers focusing on the different facets of this relationship from scholars in different disciplines such as: Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology, Theology, Philosophy, Cultural Studies, Thanatology, Health Humanities, Social Care and Social Work. Among others, topics or areas of focus might include:

  • Death anxiety and religiosity in non-western cultures
  • The different perspectives to ‘Extrinsic Religiosity’
  • Is ‘Intrinsic Religiosity’ really the reliever of anxiety?
  • Psychological/sociological/psychosocial significance of death rituals
  • The changing nature of death rituals
  • Personal religious beliefs and ideas about death
  • Belief in afterlife and death anxiety
  • The changing relationship between death and religion due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • The non-religious traditions and death
  • Autoethnographic accounts of performing/witnessing death rituals
  • Death as latent and religion as evident in Freudian texts
  • Religious Literacy and the end of life care
  • Extinction as ultimate death and other morbid anxieties of the Anthropocene

Authors publishing their articles in the topical issue will benefit from:

– transparent, comprehensive and efficient peer review,

– free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions.

Because “Open Theology” is published in Open Access, as a rule, publication costs should be covered by so called Article Publishing Charges (APC), paid by authors, their affiliated institutions, funders or sponsors.

Call for Papers: The Spirit, the Kingdom & Ecumenism – Wolfhart Pannenberg’s Doctrine of the Church.

The theological thought of Wolfhart Pannenberg has generated significant conversations, since  the publication of Revelation as History in 1961. Since his passing in 2014, dozens (269) of doctoral dissertations written in English have engaged his corpus, launching a new generation of  scholars who have been impacted by his life and work. 

In an effort to gather scholars interested in the legacy of this seminal thinker, the Pannenberg Symposium will host a conference on March 25 & 26, 2022, in collaboration with Loyola University Chicago, Institute for Pastoral Studies and the Hank  Center for the Catholic Intellectual Heritage. 

Commemorating the 25th anniversary of the publication of Systematic Theology, Vol. 3 in English, this conference will address the following theme: 

The Spirit, The Kingdom, and Ecumenism—Wolfhart Pannenberg’s Doctrine of the Church. 

Thus, we would like to extend a Call for Papers engaging Pannenberg’s thought particularly as developed in Vol. 3 of his Systematic Theology. Potential topics include: 

  • Pneumatology: Person and Work of the Holy Spirit
  • Ecclesiology: Nature and Purpose of the Church, doctrine of election
  • Eschatology: The coming kingdom of God and its establishment in history
  • Sacramental Theology: Ecumenical scope, presence of the Spirit in the Eucharist, ministry/ordination
  • Ecumenism in his doctrine of the Church and his work with the World Council of Churches
  • The Church and Society
  • Pannenberg’s political theology and engagement with liberation theology
  • Natural law
  • Theodicy and the coming of Justice

We are especially interested in engaging scholars from a diversity of denominational, cultural, and theological perspectives  to create a critical and constructive conversation about the significance of Pannenberg’s theology for contemporary thought.  Proposals from a wide range of theological approaches are encouraged. 

To respond to the call for papers, please send a proposal of no more than 500 words to  Proposals will be evaluated on the contribution they could make to the symposium theme, the clarity of the proposed research  plan, and their significance for the study of Pannenberg’s theology. Proposals should be submitted by July 1, 2021 and will be  subject to a blind review process. Doctoral students and junior scholars are encouraged to submit a proposal. A limited number or registration scholarships are available for those in need. 

The organizers for the conference also have two hopes for future efforts growing out of this conference. First, they will be  seeking publication for a selection of the best papers coming out of the conference as part of an edited volume. Second, our  hope is that the conversation generated by the attendees may give rise to further meetings of the Pannenberg symposium on  a regular basis. Scholars who are interested in such an ongoing project are also encouraged to notify the organizers of their  interest in this broader effort.

TheoLogica Call for Papers: Analytic Science-Engaged Theology

Guest editors: Joanna Leidenhag and Benedikt Göcke

Analytic theology and Science-Engaged Theology are two of the most exciting  movements within theology in recent years. Both are interdisciplinary endeavours  that seek to use the tools and insights from others sub-disciplines (areas of analytic  philosophy and the natural sciences, respectively) in the service of theology. Analytic  theology and science-engaged theology both maintain the primacy and integrity of  the theological task, whilst simultaneously inviting other disciplines to enrich theological reflection, criticism, and declaration. 

What these recent trends show is that theologians no longer need to (if they  ever did) fear forms of rationalism or empiricism that, in previous generations, have  been used to exclude theological discourse from the public square or academic  University. It is clearly the case that theologians have long appealed to reason and  experience as sources for theological reflection and correction. But in analytic theology  and science-engaged theology, we can see that theologians can also use (as well as  critique) the highly constrained, specialised, and systematised forms of reasoning and  evidencing that is found in analytic philosophy and the natural sciences. Analytic  theology and science-engaged theology are in this sense complementary movements  that signal that theology has now reached a kind of quiet confidence that does not  need to fight, flee or submit to other forms of inquiry. 

Whilst analytic theology and science-engaged theology have developed  separately, they substantially overlap on the question of how theology can best engage  other disciplines. Thus, there is scope for a further alliance of these movements in the  form of analytic science-engaged theology. Such an analytic science-engaged theology  would use the tools of both analytic philosophy and some specific area of the natural  sciences within their theology. We are inviting papers that exemplify this kind of fine grained, interdisciplinary, constructive theological work. We are not primarily  looking for papers that discuss the possibility or nature of analytic science-engaged theology, but for papers that exemplify this sub-field by exploring a theological  question using both scientific and analytic resources.  \

We welcome all forms of analytic science-engaged theology; in particular, we  are very interested in papers that engage a theological tradition outside of mainstream  Christianity, or which prioritize the voices of marginalized groups.” 

Deadline for submissions: October 1st, 2021 

Full papers should be submitted via our website: In order to contribute equally to  scientific international discussions held in several languages, articles written in  English, French, German, Italian, and Spanish are accepted. Visit the TheoLogica  homepage for a description of the journal and instructions to authors.

Yours sincerely,

Development of Doctrine – Conference & Call for Papers: June 10-12, 2021.

The Sacra Doctrina Project and St. Bernard’s School of Theology and Ministry are co-sponsoring a conference and call for papers on the topic of….

Title: Development of Doctrine: Revelation, Magisterium, and Human Reason.

Date & Location: June 10-12, 2021| Rochester, NY

Speakers: Matthew Levering (keynote) Stephen Loughlin (plenary) & Fr. Aquinas Guilbeau, O.P. (plenary)


Vatican I declares that “right reasoning . . .  illumined by [the light of faith], perfects the knowledge of divine things,” but also that, “the doctrine of faith . . . has not been handed down as a philosophic invention to the human mind to be perfected, but has been entrusted as a divine deposit to the Spouse of Christ, to be faithfully guarded and infallibly interpreted.” (Dei Filius, 4)

How does reason perfect faith? How does the theologian perfect knowledge of divine things while faithfully guarding the revelation entrusted to the Church? If, as St. John Henry Newman says, “here below to live is to change, and to be perfect is to have changed often,” how does our faith stay alive while remaining the same? How do we distinguish between organic and inorganic development of doctrine?

These questions cut to the heart of philosophy and theology as disciplines in service to the Church. Differing answers to these questions are the source of the contemporary crisis in Catholic thought.

Call for Papers:

Please submit a ~300 word abstract by May 12021 to

Priority consideration will be given for proposals received by April 1, 2021.

*Proposals already accepted in the 2020 call for papers do not need to resubmit.*
