Logoi cover (Spring 2016)


We discuss the work-in-progress of the Center's Fellows, local faculty, and occasional outside visitors. Papers are not presented during the discussion group meeting; rather, we read the papers in advance and the meetings are devoted entirely to Q&A. 

The next meeting is to be scheduled for August 2016.

See our calendar for the full schedule.

JAT Logo 2

We are excited to announce the third volume of the Journal of Analytic Theology, a new, open access, international joint publication of the Center for Philosophy of Religion at the University of Notre Dame and Baylor University. It explores theological and meta-theological topics in a manner that prizes terminological clarity and argumentative rigor, including historical studies that seek to elucidate conceptual challenges or explore strategies for addressing them.
