The British Society for the  Philosophy of Religion

The British Society for the Philosophy of Religion (registered charity 1027548) was founded in 1993 and is the UK’s main forum for the interchange of ideas in the philosophy of religion. Since 1995 the Society has held a biennial conference in Britain, devoted to a particular area of the subject.


Our last conference 'Philosophy and the Spiritual Life' took place on 7-8 September, 2017 at Oriel College, Oxford. Our next conference 'Death and Immortality' will take place in September 2019.


The BSPR is also affiliated to the European Society for Philosophy of Religion which holds a biennial conference in years alternating with the BSPR’s conference.

The programme of events for the Society is decided at the General Meeting held at the Biennial Conference. The planning of the programme is in the hands of the Committee, consisting currently of Professor Maria Rosa Antognazza (President), Dr. Anastasia Philippa Scrutton (Honorary Secretary), Dr. T. Ryan Byerly (Honorary Treasurer), and other Committee Members.
