Religious Studies subject guide

 

 

Online subject resources

Most of the resources below are freely available on the internet. In addition, the Library subscribes to a vast range of online resources: see other pages within this guide for bibliographic databases, e-books, and online reference works.

General Religious Studies resources

  • International Bible and Theology Gateways (University of Passau): the text of the site is in German, but many of the links are in English
  • Internet Detective (from Intute): contains guidance about using the internet for study purposes
  • Internet Theology Resources: links for searchers of theological and religious information on the Internet
  • INTUTE arts and humanities: gateways to individual subject areas, and links to associations and societies in each of their subject areas. Owing to funding difficulties no new resources are being added to the Intute database, but this is still a useful resource for finding relevant institutions and organisations related to the subject areas.
  • Voice of the Shuttle: Humanities research gateway

Data sources

  • CESSDA (Council of European Social Science Data Archives)
  • Clergy of the Church of England Database (CCEd): records of clerical careers from over 50 archives in England and Wales, providing coverage of clerical lives from the Reformation to the mid-nineteenth century
