Centre for Religion and Public Life research clusters

Religion, Health and Well-being

Centre for Religion and Public Life research into the intersections of religion, health and well-being is of a twofold nature.

Part of it is empirical, examining the role of religious communities and organisations in public health services locally and internationally, as well as the role of religious beliefs and practices in promoting or hindering mental and physical health and well-being.

Part of it is theological and philosophical, exploring the contribution of religious belief and aesthetic goods to human flourishing and spiritual well-being, as well as the relationship between religious and secular perspectives on the nature of well-being.
