Alister Hardy Religious Experience Research Centre

Welcome to the Alister Hardy Religious Experience Research Centre (RERC).

Sir Alister HardyThe Religious Experience Research Centre houses an archive with over 6,000 accounts of first-hand experiences of people from across the world who had a spiritual or religious experience.

Founded by Sir Alister Hardy in 1969 at Manchester College, Oxford, the RERC moved to Lampeter in July 2000. The Centre's aim is to study contemporary accounts of religious or spiritual experiences. In addition to its archive of accounts the RERC houses a specialist collection of books and journals.

The Centre organises seminars and conferences and supports a postgraduate degree Master by Research in Religious Experience.

The MRes Religious Experience is supported by a bursary (based on needs) funded by the Alister Hardy Trust; for information go to: http://www.uwtsd.ac.uk/bursaries/
