Research areas

Dr Caleb Froehlich is Associate Lecturer in Theology and the Arts. He specialises in theology and the arts with a focus on the intersections between religion, art, and culture from the 20th century to the present, especially as this relates to culturally engaged theology, biblical/theological reception, and religious experience. His forthcoming book, Redefining Religious Experience in the Long Sixties (Routledge), explores the continuing influence of religion on the meaning-making engagements of ‘seeking’ American youths with seminal works of popular art (in architecture/painting, film, literature, and music) during the Sixties era. 

He received his PhD in Religion, Art, and Culture as well as a Master of Letters in Theology, Imagination, and the Arts from the University of St Andrews. He also holds a Master’s in Theology from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. Before returning to St Andrews, he investigated audience experiences with sacred art at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as a Postdoctoral Researcher on the Templeton-funded ‘Art and the Sacred’ project and was the IASH-CTPI Duncan Forrester Fellow at the University of Edinburgh.
