Dr. Dominic Erdozain was previously Lecturer in the History of Christianity and Director of the Theology & Ministry MA Programmes at King’s College London. Trained as an undergraduate at Oxford and a research student at Cambridge to study history 'for its own sake', he is nevertheless committed to bringing historical insights to contemporary debates, especially in the area of Christianity and culture.

Erdozain's research interests include the history of secularization, evangelism in the English-speaking world, and the history of sport and leisure. His first book, The Problem of Pleasure: Sport, Recreation and the Crisis of Victorian Religion (Boydell & Brewer, 2010), has been called "essential reading for historians of Victorian religion." Erdozain's latest book, The Soul of Doubt: The Religous Roots of Unbelief from Luther to Marx (Oxford University Press, 2015), focuses on the 'religious' roots of unbelief in modern society.

He has spoken in churches, schools and non-academic conferences on a wide range of issues, from the abolition of slavery to the history of the Olympic Games. Erdozain has acted as a historical consultant for BBC documentaries such as Ian Hislop's "Age of the Do Gooders" and been interviewed on Radio 4 and BBC news for stories relating to secularisation and religious resurgence.

He is a member of the Institute of Historical Research, where he co-convenes the Modern Religious History seminar.
