The 2015 Oxford Theology Summer School will be held on the campus of Christ Church, University of Oxford. Christ Church is one of the 37 colleges and halls that make up the University of Oxford, and it has its own cathedral. (Its “great hall” (dining hall) where Theology Summer School students dine was also used in the Harry Potter films.) Christ Church is located near the city center of Oxford and is surrounded by museums, shops, movie theaters, churches, the University’s Bodleian Libraries as well as a number of other colleges of the University of Oxford, including those where authors C. S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien taught.

More information about the 2015 Oxford Theology Summer School, including course titles and faculty, will made available over the coming weeks and months.
