Dr Catherine Pickstock's research interests fall into three main areas.
- The application of linguistics to theories of religious language, analogy and liturgy, with a consideration of the implications of this interaction for linguistics itself
- A critical consideration of postmodern philosophy in relation to the re-interpretation of premodern theology
- A reconsideration of the Platonic tradition in interaction with the Biblically based faiths, in particular the question of theurgy and understandings of the soul
