Dr Justin J Meggitt
Justin Meggitt is ICE's Academic Director for Religious Studies, University Senior Lecturer in the Study of Religion and a Fellow of Wolfson College.

Religious Studies tutors
Courses in religious studies at ICE are taught by tutors whose work encompasses an enormous range of subject areas and reflects both traditional fields, such as Biblical studies or the study of the Reformation, and more recent areas of academic interest, such as the critical issues raised by the phenomenon of 'non-religion' and interfaith encounter. Cambridge contains a large and diverse concentration of expertise in the study of religion, and ICE is very fortunate to offer courses that reflect this.
