Dr Mary Stevens, Introduction

Hello, my name is Mary. I am an Honorary Research Fellow in the School of Divinity in the University of St Andrews, where I gained both an MLitt and a PhD in theology. Having reached the end of my working life I am hoping to develop vigorously my own theological ideas and to pursue interdisciplinary work. 

Consecrated Life

A major focus of my research concerns the theology of the consecrated life, which may be found in its own section.

Current Affairs

The current pandemic provokes and demands serious thought and reflection. The major focus of my thought at the present time is therefore centred on bringing my own theological expertise and personal insight, such as it is, to try to find and articulate ideas, alone and with others, which may be of use.

I have jotted down a few thoughts: which may be found with other talks and papers and also accessed directly through the drop down menu above


A few years ago I was involved in the Theoartistry project of St Marys’s College in the University of St Andrews. An introduction to it may be accessed directly here, and the individual pages relateed to it may also be accessed via the drop down menu above.


This form may be used to contact me, but it doesn’t seem to work very well, although it’s worth giving it a shot! (It’s just part of the template of the website.)
