The present Covid-19 pandemic has been the cause of massive social, economic, and religious dislocation. Its longer-term implications remain unclear. At this difficult time, theologians have a responsibility to draw upon the sources of our faith to provide insights from our religious traditions from which people both inside and outside the church may draw hope and meaning.

The Conference, Theologising in the Shadow of a Pandemic, organised by the SCD Theology Research Network is a face-to-face conference at the Sydney College of Divinity scheduled for 20-21 May 2022.
