Mission and History

Religio began in the spring of 2007 as a way for students to read, write and reflect on their Christian Faith. This university is founded on the premise that knowledge and religion, eruditio et religio, are fundamental to the development and formation of all persons. Our mission is once again to bring Christianity into dialogue with the learning of this university. This project is ecumenical in its nature, and we draw upon people from a diverse range of Christian traditions and fellowships on campus.

This journal is part of a larger initiative called "The Augustine Project," seeking to establish journals of Christian though at college an university campuses across the nation. The journal is a grateful partner of Pathways, a ministry of Duke Chapel that helps students discover their calling through programs of theological exploration and vocational discernment.
