Overview of Polls

The DRH originally had a single poll organized around the "Religious Group," but is now expanding to include new polls organized around different units, including polls created and edited by outside researchers and research teams. Experts can now choose the poll that is best suited to their particular area of research.

We have recently introduced our first of these new Religion polls, the "Place" poll, and will soon be publishing our first external researcher designed poll, a poll on "Mystical Harm" (i.e, witchcraft, were-creatures, curses, etc.). Future plans include poll organized around religious "Text," "Ritual" and "Supernatural Being." You are welcome to click on these links to provide input about the content of these polls, or to contact us to suggest new polls.

We also plan to eventually expand beyond religion to revive the "Polity" poll, originally designed as part of a collaboration with another research project. Until this time, existing Polity entries can still be browsed on the DRH, but no new entries created.
