July 24, 2014

The University of Virginia’s Project on Lived Theology has received a $2.1 million grant from the Lilly Endowment to extend the project for five more years, from 2015 through 2019.

The project is a long-term theological research program exploring the relation between Christian spiritual beliefs and social practice.

The Project on Lived Theology regularly brings together theologians, students and religion scholars in partnership with practitioners to understand the social implications of religious beliefs. The meetings are often held in congregations and faith communities. More than 3,000 people have participated in such programs since the project’s founding in 2000.
