Home - Religion

"Religion" is a large umbrella, under which countless belief systems reside. This guide is meant to identify main ports of entry for the study of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism, as well as religions traditionally associated with Asia (e.g., India, Pakistan, China, Japan, Tibet, etc.) - Hinduism, Buddhism, Zen Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism/Daoism, and Shinto.

Subject guides for Classics and Philosophy and Anthropology may also be useful for these and other world religions and belief systems.


For specialized research in the above-mentioned religions, Native American, Caribbean or African traditional religions, and additional religions and belief systems (e.g., cargo cults, wicca, etc.), contact me to ask a question or to set up an appointment for a research consultation. I am always happy to work one-on-one with you to help you with your specific research topic.
