£2.5m chair

The potential for future relations between Judaism, Christianity and Islam will be explored at Oxford University through a new chair in the study of Abrahamic religions.

An anonymous £2.5 million donation will, from the 2009 academic year, fund the study of the founding texts of each religion via a range of philosophical, historical, artistic and political topics.
