A Guide to Religion: Start

Ask Us!

Spring 2021 reference (research) help:

Research in Religion

Religion is a wide-ranging discipline which considers questions of the history, theology, ethical framework, and scriptural authorities of religions as well as the influence of ideas, institutions, and experiences of religious traditions on society. The methodologies of the field draw from history, archaeology, sociology, and other fields, making it an interdisciplinary field of study.  When you search for resources, never underestimate the power of browsing. If you find a book that's of interest, scan the shelves nearby. Books in our library are shelved by topic, so chances are you'll find other related materials right next door.

This guide is a starting point; don't hesitate to ask a librarian for further assistance.
