It's an endlessly contentious, incredibly important, but  deeply mysterious phenomenon.

In this mini-series, we talk with scholars working at the cutting edge of science to explore just what religion is, where it came from, and what makes it so powerful.

Join us on this journey, deep into the roots of human psyche.  

A journey into the new science of religion.
