Janet Soskice (born 16 May 1951)[1] is a Canadian-born Catholic theologian and philosopher; she is professor of Philosophical Theology and a fellow of Jesus College at the University of Cambridge. Her theological and philosophical work has dealt with the role of women in Christianity,[2] religious language, the relationship between science and religion.[3]

Her book The Sisters of Sinai details the history of the discovery of the Syriac Sinaiticus by Agnes and Margaret Smith.[4] Soskice has also written that she became religious following a very "dramatic but banal" religious experience.[5]
