Religious Studies

Primary tabs

This is  "START HERE" guide designed with patrons of the Stanford University in mind. It identifies major reference materials and text sources in Western languages in Religious Studies refering to Stanford holdings but also offers selected links to internet sites outside Stanford. Religious topics are present in general sources such as bibliographies and encyclopedias thus Stanford's main Home Page should be consulted. Scholars working with non-Western langages will find ample resoureces related to religion on the East Asia Library  and the Middle East pages. Researchers are also encouraged to consult Home Pages of other institutions wth major programs in religious studies, as the e-resources are rapidly expanding and changing and an exhaustive approach to available materials is no longer feasable.

There are numerous single volumes encyclopedias, companions, encyclopedic dictionaries and handbooks too many to enumerate. Many of them may be found in SearchWorks under subject search: Religion encyclopedias.

For denominations consult the on-going series:
Historical dictionaries of denominations, philosophies, and movements. Lanham, Md.: Scarecrow Press. Classed as separates. You may also search under subject, e.g., encyclopedia of... and the name of the denomination or subjects such as women and religion, fundamentalism and others.

Below I am citing a few encyclopedias published since 2000 that do not use the word encyclopedia:

"The World Religion Database (WRD) contains detailed statistics on religious affiliation for every country of the world. It provides source material, including censuses and surveys, as well as best estimates for every religion to offer a definitive picture of international religious demography. It offers best estimates at multiple dates for each of the world’s religions for the period 1900 to 2050."

Adherents.com is a growing collection of over 43,870 adherent statistics and religious geography citations: references to published membership/adherent statistics and congregation statistics for over 4,200 religions, churches, denominations, religious bodies, faith groups, tribes, cultures, movements, ultimate concerns, etc. The religions of the world are enumerated here.

The American Religion Data Archive "includes data on churches and church membership, religious professionals, religious groups, and the general population."
