The Religious Literacy Project has developed a series of case studies that illustrate how religious traditions deal in diverse ways with issues of climate change, gender, minority status in the United States, and violence and peace. These case studies can be used on their own or in conjunction with the Religion Profiles and/or Country Profiles. Each case study uses the method of the Religious Literacy Project and seeks to demonstrate that the religious tradition it discusses is internally diverse, changes over time, and is embedded in culture. Please see Our Method for additional information on how we study religion.
The case studies on this page were created by Kristofer Rhude (MDiv'18) for the Religious Literacy Project under the editorial direction of Dr. Diane L. Moore.
