Welcome to the website of the McDonald Centre for Theology, Ethics, and Public Life. We are a research institute at the University of Oxford dedicated both to fostering understanding of the right shaping of moral and public life through the resources of Christian ethical and political thought, and to refining the latter through close engagement with current public issues. We aim to do so in charitable and candid conversation with other traditions of theological and philosophical thought.
Navigation through the site is effected using the menu system, now typical of most websites. Clicking or tapping on a menu item will take you to the introductory page and will reveal sub-categories, which again just require a click or tap to open. If you are using a mobile device or restricted screen, please tap on the square with three horizontal lines in it to reveal the menu.
You will find various audio and video recordings that should play back directly on your device, so please get in touch if you cannot access any media.
