Religious Studies: Primary Sources

Primary Sources Resources

Religious Texts

The library has print copies of many religious texts. Use the library catalog to find specific texts.  When you locate the text on the shelf, additional copies will be next to it, especially when a work may be translated or annotated.

Because of the age of religious texts, many are in the public domain and can also be found online. Below are a handful of online resources.
