The Centro de Estudos de História Religiosa (CEHR - Centre of Religious History Studies) is a research and training unit of the Universidade Católica Portuguesa (UCP - Catholic University of Portugal) that focuses specifically on the field of religious history. It incorporates members from the Faculty of Theology history staff, other Faculties at the University as well as researchers from other universities and institutions dedicated to the study of the religious history of Portugal.
Participation in networking projects represents a unit specialisation. The CEHR is a research and development unit recognised and financed by the Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia (Foundation for Science and Technology) and recipient of a «Good» classification in its most recent evaluation.
Since its founding, the Centre has invested a great deal of attention to its relationship with international centres and researchers and demonstrating its openness to historiographic reflection and study at the European and international level. This is reflected in the encouragement and support for Portuguese researchers attending international events, inviting international researchers and seeking to guarantee the Centre´s presence in international networking projects.
