The Religious Life Institute
Formed in 2009, the Religious Life Institute is a response to initiatives from the Conference of Religious of England and Wales and grassroots members of various religious orders.
About the Religious Life Institute
Its mission is to foster a theological vision of Christian religious life through study and research and to become the resource for the study of religious life in the English speaking world. The Institute offers study days, courses and colloquia and aims to develop materials available in a variety of media, to support action research and develop reflective practice.
The Institute also aims to undertake in-depth research into the theology and spirituality of religious life.
