TRPR has traditionally been a strong subject at Peterhouse, and there is a vibrant undergraduate and postgraduate community of theologians within the College at present. Peterhouse usually admits two undergraduate students in TRPR every year, and our theologians are strongly represented in all areas of College. Unlike the majority of colleges, which only have a single teaching Fellow in TRPR, Peterhouse is lucky enough to have two; and they specialise in very different areas.
James Carleton Paget teaches New Testament studies, and has a particular interest in the way in which Christianity emerged as a distinct religious movement from both Jewish and the wider pagan environment. Stephen Hampton teaches Christian theology and church history, and has a particular interest in the development of Protestant theology between the Reformation and the Enlightenment. Both James and Stephen are glad to hear from anyone interested in studying TRPR at Peterhouse, and will be very happy to answer any questions you might have about the course or the College, or indeed to meet you. This can be done during a College Open Day, or arranged individually by emailing either or both fellows.
