My name is Gregory Craveiro I am applying for a PhD in Theology at Durham University to start in January 2024. Durham University offers a unique PhD pathway that allows the student to have one of their supervisors from a theological partner institution. One of these institutions Durham is partnered with is the Institute for Orthodox Christian Studies (IOCS) in Cambridge.
