Jakub Ort studied theology at the Protestant Theological Faculty of the Charles University in Prague. The theme of his master thesis was interpretation of the political theology of Johann Baptist Metz and of its relation to the Critical theory of the Frankfurt school.
He cooperates on the grant project „Unity and Multiplicity in Contemporary Thought“ (main researcher Michael Hauser). He focuses on the theological and philosophical movement of Radical ortodoxy (especially John Milbank) from the perspective of contemporary critique of postmodern thinking.
He is a broadcaster in the Czech Radio's show Hergot! (focusing on the religion and society), and a regular contributor of the A2 magazine.
