Every Tuesday this semester, about 20 students gathered in J. Walter Wilson for the Brown Religious Literacy Project, a non-for-credit class designed to promote dialogue about world religions.

Ben Marcus ’13, the creator of the project, said the name of the project is slightly tongue in cheek because it is impossible to become fully religiously literate in any one religion in one semester — or ever. “The goal is to make people in a way realize how little they know and to give them the hunger and the skills to further their knowledge about one tradition or multiple traditions,” he said.
