Welcome to the Department of Religion

Religion shapes the lives of individuals in ways that relate in many different ways to culture, law, health, politics, and art. These influences are not always mutual, visible, and at times even desirable. During the early decades of Emory University at Oxford, research and teaching of Religion focused primarily on the study of theology. Currently, our department is a place where scholars of all ages and ranks raise a host of different questions about the central role of religion in everyday life.
