Chloë Reddaway is Howard and Roberta Ahmanson Fellow in Art and Religion at the National Gallery, London. Her work focuses on visual theology and Christian art, and she is responsible at the National Gallery for teaching the MA in Christianity and the Arts in collaboration with KCL. Chloë has taught for this course for KCL since its second year, and is a Visiting Research Fellow at the centre for Arts and the Sacred at King’s (ASK).
After reading Philosophy and Theology at Trinity College, Oxford, Chloë worked in the arts sector for five years and took a post-graduate diploma in Cultural Management at City University.  In 2009, she moved to KCL for an AHRC-funded doctoral thesis on the theology of Florentine fresco cycles, and was later Research Assistant to Professor Ben Quash.  From 2013-14 Chloë was a Research Associate in the Divinity Faculty, Cambridge (Peterhouse), where she supported the Inter-faith Programme.
Chloë teaches for Westcott House, the Southern Theological Education and Training Scheme, and Westminster College, Cambridge. A monograph based on her doctoral research is in preparation with Brepols and she is co-editing a volume on religion and visual culture in London with Professor Ben Quash and Dr Aaron Rosen of ASK.  She is a regular contributor to Art and Christianity Enquiry, an inaugural Associate of the Westminster Abbey Institute, and a member of the Society for the Arts in Religious and Theological Studies, the Society for the Study of Theology, and Art and Christianity Enquiry.
Research interests

Chloë works on visual theology in the field of Theology and the Arts/ Christianity and the Arts.  She is primarily interested in how images can facilitate a relationship between the viewer and God, with a particular focus on the ‘recovery’ of historical Christian images for contemporary theology and modern viewers.
