Religion in Context

Presented by the Harvard Divinity School (HDS), Religion in Context reminds readers that "religious literacy" involves going beyond generalizations to understand the ways each religion is "internally diverse, historically dynamic, and embedded in culture." At the link above, readers will find information on five world Religions: Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. Additionally, readers will find Case Studies exploring how religions respond to pressing social issues, including climate change and conflict. Other features include a section on Arts and Culture (sharing relevant blog posts and stories) and Country Profiles (highlighting the religious diversity across continents and within countries). Along with the Religion in Context section, readers may wish to explore other sections of the HDS site. For example, the News and Events section recaps recent news, highlights forthcoming events, and links to the Ministry of Ideas podcast, which explores the intersection of religion and society. HDS's religious literacy materials became publicly available in 2015, and the offerings have continuously expanded since.
