Theology and the Built Environment Colloquim

The Theology and the Built Environment Colloquium was established in 2001 as a research arm of Theology Through the Arts. It is jointly chaired by Dr Murray Rae of the University of Otago, New Zealand, and Professor Alan Torrance of St Andrews University Scotland. The Colloquium is sponsored by the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, Calvin College, Grand Rapids, Michigan.
