Websites on philosophy and religion


Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy - Contains nearly 1600 entries online. From its inception, the SEP was designed so that each entry is maintained and kept up-to-date by an expert or group of experts in the field.


ARDA (Association of Religion Data Archives) - Free, easy to use resource that compiles information about religion and many other social topics from the census and other sources

Religion Online - Religion Online is designed to assist teachers, scholars and general "seekers" who are interested in exploring religious issues. The aim is to develop an extensive library of resources, representing many different points of view, but all written from the perspective of sound scholarship. While the initial orientation has been to seek material written primarily from a Christian perspective, the ultimate aim is to broaden the scope to include material on all the world's major religions.
