Faith and Secularisation in Religious Colleges and Universities James Arthur There are almost 2,000 religious higher education institutions worldwide, 250 of which are in Europe. Faith and Secularisation in Religious Colleges and Universities is the first book to offer a comparative study of these institutions across many religions and countries including Christian, Islamic and Jewish universities in areas including the US, Europe and the Middle East. Considering the current tensions and debates surrounding academic freedom, institutional governance, educational policy, mission and identity, this innovative and challenging book explores: institutions' relations with the state and their wider communities whether such institutions can be both religious and a "university" the appropriate role of religious faith within colleges and universities academic autonomy and the role of religion in education Faith and Secularisation in Religious Colleges and Universities offers some important ideas on how such institutions can be part of diversity and pluralism yet remain committed in a holistic and coherent way to their religious traditions. It will appeal to readers involved in higher education studies, religious study and the history of education, as well as individuals within religious institutions. James Arthur is Professor of Education at Canterbury Christ Church University. He completed his doctorate at Oriel College in the University of Oxford and has written widely on the relationship between theory and practice in education.
