Personal profile


Dr Caleb Froehlich is an editor for De Gruyter's Encyclopedia of the Bible and its Reception, and a Postdoctoral Researcher for a Templeton-funded 'Understanding the Spiritual through the Creative Arts' project at the University of Edinburgh, where he is exploring whether and how audience experiences with sacred art at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival extend their knowledge and understanding of the spiritual.

Caleb completed his PhD in Religion, Art, and Culture at the University of St Andrews. His thesis examined the role of popular arts in the personal and spiritual quests of young people in the long Sixties, concentrating on religious meaning-making, especially as this relates to how religious knowing lingers and impacts the ways in which people engage with cultural productions. His principal areas of research include the intersection between religion, art, media, and culture (with a focus on twentieth and twenty-first century religious history), culturally engaged theology (with a focus on art and media as theological and/or religious in potentia), and biblical reception (with a focus on art and digital media).
