Halil Avci is currently an MLitt student in the Historical and Systematic Theology program in the Divinity School at the University of St Andrews. His previous education was in Islamic Theology at the Eberhard-Karls University Tübingen. His research interest in Theology focuses mostly on ‘inter-religious’ issues. In addition to that, he looks at the ways in which a religious tradition is understood by looking at it in a wider sense – that is, its relation to arts, other cultures, world-views or social forces. He plans to pursue an MPhil in the same research area under the supervision of Prof M I Aguilar.
