Religion: Home

All aspects of Religion, including major belief systems.


QuickSearch is the search box that appears on the library home page and elsewhere on library pages.  It subsumes our catalog and many other databases for books, newspapers, and journals.  Hence your searches can access a great variety of material, but you may want to use the filters for material type, subject, date published, etc.  Also be aware that many other indexes, like Historical Abstracts, MLA, ATLA, and IMB, are not included.

During the pandemic you cannot browse physical library stacks, but library study space is open, we have even more digital collections, and Click and Connect enables you to request physical books for pickup from our libraries or free UPS home delivery within the US.


This guide focuses on print and licensed resources for the study of religion that are readily accessible to users of the Rutgers University Libraries.
