Dominic Erdozain


Dr. Dominic Erdozain was previously Lecturer in the History of Christianity and Director of the Theology & Ministry MA Programmes at King’s College London. Trained as an undergraduate at Oxford and a research student at Cambridge to study history 'for its own sake', he is nevertheless committed to bringing historical insights to contemporary debates, especially in the area of Christianity and culture.

Erdozain's research interests include the history of secularization, evangelism in the English-speaking world, and the history of sport and leisure. His first book, The Problem of Pleasure: Sport, Recreation and the Crisis of Victorian Religion (Boydell & Brewer, 2010), has been called "essential reading for historians of Victorian religion." Erdozain's latest book, The Soul of Doubt: The Religous Roots of Unbelief from Luther to Marx (Oxford University Press, 2015), focuses on the 'religious' roots of unbelief in modern society.
