UVM professor Ilyse Morgenstein Fuerst describes religious literacy—knowing what religion is, how religions work, and who religious people might be—as a social justice issue. Morgenstein Fuerst explores who is allowed to be religiously illiterate, who has to be religiously literate, and how to learn more about religion.

Ilyse Morgenstein Fuerst is Associate Professor of Religion and Associate Director of the Humanities Center at the University of Vermont.
