Encyclopedia of Religion Online presents a cross-cultural approach that emphasizes religion’s role within everyday life and as a unique experience from culture to culture. The original 2,750 entries have been retained, many heavily updated, and approximately 600 entirely new articles have been added by an international team of scholars and contributors. Based on 15 volumes of print edition: Lindsay Jones (editor), 2nd ed., published in 2005 by Macmillan Reference USA. The database also includes other Gale reference works in culture and religion (and some psychology).
