Welcome to the Sophia Project, the outreach pages for The Sophia Centre for the Study of Cosmology in Culture, a unique research and teaching centre within the Faculty of Humanities and the Performing Arts at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. The Sophia Project brings together the Sophia Centre's wider activities. 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. We deal with the modern world as much as indigenous or ancient practices.
