The Religious History Affinity Group provides a forum in which the history of all faith communities may be shared, understood, and appreciated. Additionally, the group serves as a resource for sharing best practices in research, interpretation, and exhibition of religious history, particularly for those organizations with minimal experience in these areas.

Membership in the community is open to any member of the AASLH community, particularly those with an interest in religious history. The group seeks a broad representation of faith communities, institutions, and geographic locals in order to enhance and diversify its membership.

Raising Awareness

Since the early days of the colonization that would become the United States, religion played a role in crafting the character of both people and places. The Religious History Community works to increase the visibility of the role religion and faith played in state and local history and to provide support to institutions in interpreting and sharing this complex, and often volatile aspect of their past.
