Scholarly Approaches to the Study and Teaching of Religion

More links will be available at this, our own, site along with a more extensive glossary and chronology. We are developing and expanding a collection of resources - audio, visual, articles, news, and reviews - to better understand and pursue the academic study of religion.

Studying Religion

A well-developed site by Russell T. McCutcheon, who is one of the leading scholars and theorists on the academic study of religion. It includes biographies, definitions, and resources as well as essays that explore the essentials, functions, and classifications of religion.

American Academy of Religion (AAR)

The world's largest association of academics who research or teach topics related to religion. Parts, such as job listings, are for members only; however, it is filled with useful information, links from related organizations, and unique features, such as its Syllabus Project, and the religion source database of 5,000 religious studies experts who are willing to answer media inquiries.

North American Association for the Study of Religion

This organization emphasizes theory and method as exemplified by its journal, Method and Theory in the Study of Religion, its monograph series, Key Thinkers in the Study of Religion, and even the selection of recent books featured on this site.

Internet Sacred Text Archive

site includes an astounding array of primary texts available online or through their CDs and DVDs. The largest freely available archive of online books about religion, mythology, folklore and the esoteric on the Internet. The site is dedicated to religious tolerance and scholarship, and has the largest readership of any similar site on the web.

Voice of the Shuttle: Religious Studies

This page—the religious studies section of the massive VoS directory for humanities research—includes impressively comprehensive links to a wide variety of resources.

Pluralism Project at Harvard

This web site includes engaging multimedia resources organized by tradition, place, and other means to survey America’s religious diversity.


This page provides links to various other sites which are dedicated to the academic discipline of religious studies or which may be of related interest. We also hope to showcase religious studies scholars and their work here. Categories will be created to facilitate searching as the quantity of the links expands.

Scholars and students of religious studies are encouraged to inform us

about their ongoing work, links to their web-sites, and so on, that their work and research may be added to the database.
