Religious Life Stories Project

The Religious Life Stories Project is an ongoing oral history project conducted by the Religious Studies Department at Georgia State University. This project seeks to expand the available data on the religious/spiritual lives of individuals and acknowledge the diversity and complexity in American religious lives. The 90 minute interviews invite the narrators to speak about their personal religious lives chronologically, starting with their childhoods and continuing to the present. The interviews are loosely structured to allow the narrators to discuss and emphasize those elements of their lives that they feel are important to the understanding of their personal religiosity. The narrators describe their religiosity within the context of their unique life experiences, giving us stories that reflect not only their religious communities but the personal, social, and historical settings of their lives.
