Religious history can be approached from many different directions. Some of our faculty in this field study religious institutions, others look at religion as a form of collective identity, others explore the history of religious thought, and still others focus on devotional practices and the cultural history of religion. The study of religion also encompasses the closely related concept of "the secular." Everyone in the religious history cluster is committed to an interdisciplinary perspective that reaches out towards anthropology, sociology, philology, literature, politics, and more.
