Religions of the World: Home

This is a guide to researching religions of the world: Western and Eastern Christianity, Eastern religions, Islam, Bahai, New Age Movements, Judaism.


In which basic, recent reference sources on faiths of the world are introduced, but not much depth on any one faith is provided. Faiths presented in this guide are deserving of guides to research individually.  We have separate guides for Hinduism and Buddhism.   LIBRARY LOCATION FOR THE PRINT RESOURCES IS REFERENCE OR MAIN, AS NOTED.

If you're really into being methodical about the research process Making Sense in Religious Studies: a Student's Guide to Research and Writing by Margot Northey might be useful.  Main BL 41 .N67 2015.
