While religious heterodoxy has attracted considerable scholarly interest for its own sake, its wider intellectual consequences remain under-explored. Our conference brings together a range of scholars to discuss the implications of heterodox doctrine across broader fields of enquiry, including moral and natural philosophy and historiography, with a focus on concepts of sociability. The conference is planned to coincide with the visit of Jonathan Israel to Oxford and will engage with themes in his more recent work. By exploring the role of heterodoxy in shaping intellectual history, it will also address anew the question once posed by Hugh Trevor-Roper of ‘the religious origins of the Enlightenment’.
