The Developing Belief Network is an international network of social scientists examining the development and diversity of religious cognition and behavior and studying variation in the acquisition and transmission of religious beliefs and practices.

Funded by The John Templeton Foundation, and representing a collaboration between the University of California, Riverside, Boston University, and Databrary, this research network builds on the principles of open and collaborative science and will take an international, cross-cultural, multi-method approach. Researchers can join the Developing Belief Network through an application process. The aim of our research network is to explore the development and diversity of religious cognition by using cutting-edge mixed-methods to conduct theoretically motivated, cross-cultural comparisons.

To learn more about the planned research or becoming a member of the Developing Belief Network, please check out the Research Agenda and RFP pages on this website.

The Developing Belief Network is funded by The John Templeton Foundation, with additional support from the University of California, Riverside and Boston University, and involves a partnership with Databrary.
