Founded in 1909, the American Academy of Religion is the world's largest association of scholars of religion.
In a world where religion plays so central a role in social, political, and economic events, as well as in the lives of communities and individuals, there is a critical need for ongoing reflection upon and understanding of religious traditions, issues, questions, and values. The American Academy of Religion's mission is to promote such reflection through excellence in scholarship and teaching in the field of religion. The Academy neither endorses nor rejects any religious belief or practice.
