USC awards grant money for study of charismatic Pentecostalism

The University of Notre Dame and the University of Chicago are among the educational institutions that will receive grant money to research the spread of the charismatic Pentecostal movement.

The University of Southern California will award five centers and 16 individual scholars a total of $3.5 million to study this religious phenomenon.

Pennsylvania State University History and Religious Studies Professor Philip Jenkins said the charismatic Pentecostal movement has been significant but rarely received the credit it has been due.

New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to the study of history and religion, as well as its contemporary social dynamics.
