Between now and October 1, 2021, Yale will be hosting a trial for Religions of America.

Religions of America offers archival content that follows the development of religions and religious movements born in the United States from 1820 to 1990.

Collections included:

  • American Religions Collection at the University of California, Santa Barbara,  
  • FBI Files on Jonestown, Moorish Science Temple of American, and the Branch Davidians,
  • Hall-Hoag Collection of Dissenting and Extremist Printed Propaganda from Brown University,
