The Pluralism Project

In the past fifty years, immigration and pluralisation have dramatically changed the religious landscape of the United States. Today the encounter between people of different religious traditions takes place in cities and neighbourhoods all over the country. The Pluralism Project at Harvard University began a pioneering study of the changing religious landscape in the U.S. in 1991.
