This guide is designed to help you locate information that will assist you in writing your papers and doing additional research on religions or some religious aspect.
Informaion provided is primarily for the religions listed; however, you may find additional information provided on the OTHER RELIGIONS page as well as on the RELATED DATABASES page that may assist you in doing comparative religious research.
Under each religion you will find a selection of print books, e-books, reference books relating to culture and customs, scriptures, specific websites, and access to free journals that may or may not be in the RELATED DATABASES. Under CHRISTIANITY, you will find sources related to the different denominations/sects/groups. You will also find access the The Bible As Literature.

RELIGIONS A - Z
Not all "religions" listed here are considered by some to be religions in terms of their history, structure, traditional beliefs of what is defined as a religion. Some are referred to as a sect, cult, movement, practice, group, and even racist group. There are probably hundreds more that you can add to this list.
The list is one form of a SUBJECT SEARCH in our catalog as well as a very broad search under KEYWORD. To further define your KEYWORD SEARCH , you may wish to use "history of " (whatever the religion). Example: history of Judaism - versus just searcing under Judaism. An even further narrowing say "customs of Judaism" would generate more specific results.
