CESNUR - center for studies on new religions

 Appendix B

An important note for those who have reached this page through a search engine:
This is NOT a list of cults endorsed by CESNUR. It is an Appendix to an article by Prof. Anson D. Shupe and his colleague Susan Darnell whose main thesis ist that lists of cults should NOT be compiled , and that those who compile them are operating in a non-scholarly and generally objectionable way. Neither CESNUR nor Prof. Shupe regard any of these groups as a cult, the more so because we do not consider "cult" a valid category.
