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. The Society has, since 1995, held a biennial conference in Britain, devoted to a particular area of the subject.

The BSPR now invites submissions for its twelfth conference, on Philosophy and the Spiritual Life. The conference will be held in Oriel College, Oxford, on Thursday 7th and Friday 8th September 2017. For further details, see the Call for Papers.

The BSPR is also affiliated to the European Society for the 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 Mark Wynn (President), Professor Sarah Coakley (former President), Dr. Victoria Harrison (Honrary Secretary), Dr. William Wood (Honorary Treasurer), and other Committee Members.
