Future Plans

The Mystical Theology Network aims to hold annual academic conferences. Our ability to run these is contingent on funding. We are currently applying for a number of grants.

The next conference will be held in Oxford 8th-9th Jan 2016
Exploring how art (medieval and modern) articulates the Mystical.

  • There was previously no established academic forum for the theological discussion of Christian mysticism.
  • The Mystical Theology Network sees it at as an important goal to meet this need.
  • It aims to do this through holding a series of conferences.

Although the aim of these meetings is to promote multidisciplinary academic discussion, conferences are open to everyone, regardless of academic affiliation.
