Religious Studies: eTexts & Images
This is a guide to web sites and library resources to support research and exploration in Religious Studies.
Texts from many religions, arranged by topic, including Baha'i, Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Native American, Shinto, Sikhism, Taoism, Women, and Zoroastrianism.
The Qur'an is the source of inspiration for one of the world's major religions, followed today by over a billion people. It plays a central role in Islam and ever since it appeared fourteen hundred years ago has been the subject of intense debate. Some of this has been carried out by Muslims and some by those hostile or indifferent to Islam, producing a very wide range of views. Authored by 43 international experts, the objective of this encyclopedia is to present this diversity of thought, approach and school without priority, in order to give a strong appreciation of the range of response that the text has provoked throughout its history. The volume assumes no previous knowledge of the Qur'an, Islam or Arabic. Technical terms are explained in the text itself and the style of each entry is designed to be as self-contained as possible. At the end of the work there is a substantial annotated bibliography.
