Database Trial: World Religions

Trial ended. World Religions is now available for all Leeward users.  Click here.

The Infobase World Religions database provides historical and contemporary coverage of major world religions and spiritual movements. World Religions is not a comprehensive religion resource. It offers access to concise articles on each religion, select primary source materials, sacred texts, music clips, and videos. Supplemental resources include images of religious art, architecture, and rituals; historical timelines; maps and graphs; and a calendar of religious holidays and observances.

Students can use World Religions as a gateway to exploring religion-related topics in a structured and unbiased manner, or as a resource for maps and images that can be used to provide a finishing touch on their research assignments.
