America’s Interfaith Infrastucture Includes Hartford Seminary

For twenty years, the Harvard-based Pluralism Project has followed the development of America?s fast-changing religious landscape and studied new forms of civic and interfaith relationships.

According to the Project: “The events of 9/11 demonstrated the importance of interfaith groups already formed; in the ensuing decade we have witnessed the growth of hundreds of new interfaith initiatives. Given this rapid expansion, what we might describe as the ?interfaith infrastructure? is emerging in real-time, providing an innovative context for the kind of engagement we describe as ?pluralism.? In 2011, we embarked on a pilot study, funded by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundations, to look closely at interfaith efforts in twenty cities across the United States. While this initial study is a selective portrait, it is a first step towards our larger goal: to document and resource the interfaith movement in America.”

Hartford is one of the 20 cities, and Hartford Seminary is featured prominently in the study.
