Things to Keep in Mind
For many Comparative/World Religion topics, books can be the best type of source. There are three different types of books linked to this guide.
- Sacred Books tab: the actual religious texts (examples: Qur'an; Bible)
- Background information tab: mostly academic encyclopedias
- Books tab: "regular" books that go into more depth on a topic
For other types of sources, check out the Databases tab, and the Virtual Religion Index (link to the lower right of this page)
