  • ATLA (American Theological Library Association) Cooperative Digital Resources Initiative: This site presents a large collection of digital resources contributed by member libraries. Most are visual images of art, architecture and artifacts associated with diverse religious traditions, but there are also textual resources such as sermons and manuscripts. Students can use this searchable database for numerous and varied types of religious exploration.
  • Anno Domini: Jesus through the Centuries: This online exhibit of the Virtual Museum of Canada presents artwork dating from many different eras to explore eighteen themes relating to the perception and reception of Christ across twenty centuries.
  • Association of Religion Data Archives: Designed for the sociological and anthropological study of religions, this site gives students access to current and high-quality data on American and international religions; online interactive tools will generate “national profiles, maps, church membership overviews, denominational heritage trees, tables, charts, and other summary reports.” A similar site, the North American Religion Atlas, uses mapping technology to present data on “North American religious history within a geographical and multimedia framework.”
  • Gateway Site:
    • Wabash Center: Internet Guide to Religion: The Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Relgion not only collects, but also evaluates and annotates the linked sites—an extremely useful gateway site.
