Web resources for religious studies
CDRI: Digital resources for the study of religion
The Cooperative Digital Resources Initiative of the American Theological Library Association and Association of Theological Schools is a repository of digital resources contributed by member libraries. The CDRI database provides access to digital images of woodcuts, photographs, slides, papyri, coins, maps, postcards, manuscripts, lithographs, sermons, shape-note tune books, and various forms of Christian art, architecture, and iconography.
Internet Sacred Texts Archive
Includes full-text of sacred texts of various world religions, such as Ba'hai, Buddhism, Islam, Judaism, Shinto and Zoroastrianism.
British Library Online Gallery
Digitized texts and manuscripts including texts pertinent to Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. Includes a virtual copy of the Diamond Sutra, a Chinese text that is thought to be one of the oldest surviving printed books.
Religion specific digital resources
Religion-specific online repositories are typically very focused. Therefore, they are too numerous to list on one guide. If you are looking for specific primary resource repositories, please contact your subject librarian for assistance.
