Dr. Lippy Selected for Summer Award

Charles H. Lippy, the Leroy A. Martin Distinguished Professor of Religious Studies has been selected as the recipient of a Louisville Institute Summer Stipend award in Louisville, Kentucky.

Founded in 1990 as a center for research and leadership education on American religion, the Louisville Institute seeks to nurture inquiry and conversation among scholars and religion on the character, issues, and history of American Christianity. Summer awards are given to support scholarly projects of this nature.

Dr. Lippy's summer research and writing topic will be "Pluralism Comes of Age: American Religious Culture in the Twentieth Century." Only ten other scholars from across the U.S., representing such institutions as Emory University, Boston University, and the Union Theological Seminary in Virginia, were selected for 1998 summer awards.

An expert on popular religion in the United States, Dr. Lippy is the author of several books, including Modern American Popular Religion; Being Religious, American Style; and The Evangelicals: A History, Themes, and Biographies.
