Robert Bellah (1927-2013)

I found out this morning that Robert Bellah, one of America’s premier sociologists of religion, died on July 30 from complications after heart surgery. Bellah’s magnum opus, Religion in Human Evolution, has been foundational in my understanding of religion, and I am deeply saddened to hear of his death.

Read obituaries of Bellah from The New York Times, The Christian Century, Religion Dispatches, and Religion and Politics.
