Coverage The University has no theology department but books concerned with religion have been brought in to support teaching and research in various departments, especially classics, Welsh, history and philosophy. Hence the library has a relatively large number of books, for instance, on the religions of the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans and has books on the philosophy of religion. It has a fairly large number of books on Welsh religious history.
