The Martin Marty Center is part of the University of Chicago Divinity School.

We build on its longstanding conviction that the best and most innovative scholarship in religion arises from sustained dialogue with the world beyond the academy. We contribute to this dialogue by offering scholarly perspectives on the religious questions facing the wider public, while providing faculty and students the tools and opportunities to situate their scholarly questions within a broader cultural frame of reference.
