It has been argued that with the transformation of the National Association of Biblical Instructors (NABI) into the American Academy of Religion (AAR) in 1964 the study of religion in America moved from being essentially a religious exercise to a broadly scientific undertaking. The review and comparison of the presidential addresses to the NABI with the addresses to the AAR, it is argued here, undermines that conclusion. The founding of the AAR in part signalled the demise of the traditional Protestant dominance in the field of "religious studies" but it did not undermine the religio-humanistic underpinnings of the field and did not provide the foundations for a more objective and scientific study of religious phenomena.
