Religion plays a central – and often under-reported – role in the lives of Appalachians. It’s not just about going to church; religion seeps into the cultural identities of who we are, how we raise our families, and guides our politics.

Here, we illuminate the role of the diverse religious communities in the region and how their stories not just fit into but shape the national narrative.
