Catholic Theology in Britain

The CTAGB was founded in 1984 as a professional association for Catholic theologians in higher education and elsewhere, so that they could form contacts and debate common interests at an annual conference. The first conference on "The Christian Understanding of God" was held in Trinity and All Saints College, Leeds in September 1985.

  • 28/07/15Constitutional Change!

    At the 2014 AGM it was agreed that the Association would commit to two new membership categories: one for those engaged in Catholic theology without being practising Catholics, and another for students.

    This means a change in the CTA Constitution, which will be discussed at the upcoming 2015 AGM.  This amendment is therefore made available here in advance for all members to consider.  The relevant part of the 2014 AGM minutes are included in the document.  Please note that the categories are already agreed, we will be discussing and voting on how to word their inclusion in our Constitution.
