The World Religions & Spirituality Project (WRSP)

The mission of the World Religions &Spirituality Project is to provide objective, reliable and comprehensive information about the world's diverse array of religious and spiritual groups, with a primary focus on groups currently found in North America. The central feature of the WRSP website is, therefore, profiles of contemporary religious and spiritual movements, established world religions, and historical religious and spiritual movements. Each profile includes a presentation of the group's distinctive beliefs, rituals, organization and leadership, and issues/challenges. Particularly with respect to newer groups, reliable information often is less accessible, and this website offers comprehensive, balanced information for religion scholars, students, media representatives and those with a personal interest in understanding the diversity of religious and spiritual alternatives in the contemporary world. The group profiles are supplemented and extended with sections containin Articles/Papers, interviews in the WRSP FORUM, Archives, and Video material. In the near future, WRSP will be announcing Special Projects that feature various types of religious organization and several national/regional sets of religious organizations.

WRSP profiles are organized alphabetically. Currently available and forthcoming profiles are listed on the WRSP Index page.
