Religious Studies Collection
Religious Studies e-book collection



The Religious Studies e-book collection includes over 120 titles that examine the role of religion in culture around the world. Drawing on a range of interdisciplinary methodologies, these books examine how religion shapes everyday life, conflicts within and among religions, and religion's social, cultural, and political dynamics. The collection foregrounds underrepresented voices, offering the perspectives of women, the LGBTQ community, indigenous communities, and people of color.  It also includes foundational texts on the study of African American religion and, more generally, African and African diaspora religious life.
