The Study and Practice of Religion

The University had no shortage of contemporary journals and books on religion in the early twentieth century. Barnes Hall once housed a library of religious texts, though rare and valuable materials were not stored there. Local lecturers and faculty also gave talks on world religion at Sage Chapel. Students were given the opportunity to choose religious groups to join or form, and in 1869 they created a chapter of the Young Men’s Christian Association. As of 2015, Cornell United Religious Work is located in Anabel Taylor Hall and holds multi-denominational services and worship.
