The Louisville Institute:

The Louisville Institute is a Lilly Endowment program for the study of American religion based at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary.

The fundamental mission of the Louisville Institute is to enrich the religious life of American Christians and to encourage the revitalization of their institutions, by bringing together those who lead religious institutions with those who study them, so that the work of each might stimulate and inform the other.

We seek to enchance understanding of American religion and to encourage the vitality of American religious institutions through a program of grant making and consultations, with particular attention to Protestantism, Catholicism, the historic African-American churches, and the Hispanic religious experience.
