Ever wonder: What religion was so-and-so...? Gary Cooper. Thomas Edison. Marilyn Monroe. Walt Whitman. George Lucas. John Wayne. Sigmund Freud. Abraham Lincoln. Steven Spielberg. Antony van Leeuwenhoek. Elizabeth Taylor. Philo Farnsworth. Karl Marx. Hundreds more...
These are just a few of the famous individuals whose spiritual/religious biographies can be found at Adherents.com/people. These articles feature in depth research about the religious backgrounds, beliefs, conversions, affiliations, etc. of famous individuals. To look for a name in this section, simply click on the link above for the first letter of the person's last name. For example, click on "L" to read about the religious affiliation of George Lucas.
In addition, there are thousands of other individuals for which a separate Spiritual Biography article is not yet available, but who are listed in our "Famous Adherents" section (the directory to which is on the left side of this page). You can search also the entire Adherents.com website for a person's name using the search field below:
Also, if you are using the regular google.com website, you can search these files using google.com by entering: site:adherents.com , plus the name of the person you are looking for. For example:
site:adherents.com Abraham Lincoln
If a search of our website for a person's specific name returns many pages, and you simply want to quickly ascertain this person's religious affiliation, you may wish to constrain your search further by searching only in the "Adherents.com/largecom" sub-directory, in which all of the Famous Adherent lists are located. We suggest that you not start by limiting your search to that directory first because there are many lists in other areas of the website wherin you may find the name of the person you are looking for. (For example, there are many names of authors in Adherents.com's literature section: Adherents.com/lit.)
