You have reached the outreach page for The Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture, a research and teaching centre within the School of Archaeology, History and Anthropology at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. The Centre's remit is the consideration of how we live on planet Earth, with particular reference to the sky and cosmos as part of the wider environment. Its work is partly historical, partly anthropological and partly philosophical. It has a wide-ranging remit to investigate the role of cosmological, astronomical and astrological beliefs, models and ideas in human culture, including the theory and practice of myth, magic, divination, religion, spirituality, architecture, politics and the arts. It deals with the modern world as much as indigenous or ancient practices.

Its current projects include the Harmony Initiative which explores how people can or do live in harmony with the planet and connects to wider environmental concerns. The Centre supervises PhD students, holds conferences, publishes, sponsors events and teaches the University's MA in Cultural Astronomy and Astrology.
