Canadian Theological Society

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


The Canadian Theological Society was founded in 1955 to promote scholarly theological reflection and writing in a Canadian context.

Members of the Society are primarily theologians, who represent a broad range of denominations and scholarly interests. The Society includes members from universities, colleges, seminaries, and churches, primarily from Canada, but also from the United Kingdom, the United States, and abroad.

The Society is a founding member of the Canadian Corporation for the Studies in Religion (CCSR), together with the Canadian Society for the Study of Religion.

Role and activities[edit]

As a member of the CCSR, the Canadian Theological Society sponsors Studies in Religion/sciences religieuses, a bilingual journal that addresses a wide range of topics in religious studies and theology. It also supports and contributes to the book series published by the CCSR.

The Society meets annually at the Canadian Congress of Humanities and Social Sciences[1], which is sponsored by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences.[2]

The Society sponsors an annual lecture in the philosophy of religion in honour of its former President, the Canadian philosopher Jay Newman (1948-2007).
