Welcome to the Meaning of Religion Project!

Our research team is conducting interviews with grandparents, parents, and their adult children to learn more about how values are passed down from one generation to the next. This research is part of the Longitudinal Study of Generations, which first began in 1970. The latest wave of the study includes the fifth-generation descendants of the original participants and marks the study’s 50th anniversary. Our project is funded by the John Templeton Foundation.
