Lists of former Christians

The following is largely a link to lists of notable people who left Christianity, sorted by the religious or non-religious ideology they switched to:

By former Christian denomination

By newly adopted religion or irreligion


This section is due to the existence of former Christians who do not fit existing lists of former Christians, either because their current faith is indeterminate or is not dealt with by the above lists.
