Religious Studies


Bibliographic sources let you learn a little bit more about a topic and then see a list of recommended sources on that topic that you can find and use for yourself.



Reference Sources

Encyclopedias, dictionaries, and other reference sources provide basic information on a topic like names, dates, and definitions. These are great resources to use when narrowing down a topic or to look up unfamiliar terms and concepts when reading scholarly publications like journal articles.
