Theology and Film

Theology and FilmThis course will explore the growing field of theology and film.

Students will become conversant in the language and history of cinema, noting specifically the unique ways in which film uses technology, editing, framing, and sound to convey meaning.

After a brief introduction to film studies, this module will explore the historical relationship between theology and film, as well as the reception (ranging from prohibition to utilisation) of film by the Christian churches.

Students will spend considerable time looking at and studying selected films to develop the critical skills helpful for film interpretation and explore possible theological approaches to film criticism.


Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this course as an auditor.
Price  £230 non-residential, £380 residential (en-suite)
