Religion | Alexander Street



Discover unparalleled opportunities for comprehensive, comparative study of the world’s religions. Explore databases of Catholic, Protestant, and other Christian primary source materials, as well as Jewish, Islamic, Hindu, and Buddhist resources. You’ll find the most influential theologians and scholars, including Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Pope Benedict XVI, Rosemary Radford Ruether, Muhammad Abduh, Fethullah Gülen, and more.

Students and scholars of religion will uncover:

  • Rare and previously unpublished content: These resources incorporate an array of hard-to-find and never-before-digitized materials—theological writings, sermons, interviews, lectures, personal correspondence, confessional documents, biblical commentaries, catechisms, sacred drama, historical accounts, and more.
  • Original-language materials: When available, collections include the source materials written in their original languages alongside translations, providing scholars with an unfiltered view of key primary texts.
  • The most inclusive resources: These databases give extensive representation to feminist theologians and other previously marginalized and lesser-known voices.
  • Acclaimed collections: Collections such as The Digital Library of the Catholic Reformation have received accolades from industry publications such as CHOICE (“an indispensable tool”) and Reference Reviews (“a wonderfully conceived and executed resource”).
