Religion on Internet and in Digital Formats

There is wealth of data available on the Internet for religious studies. Almost every major academic institution with Religious Studies program has a home page that lists selected resources and provides links to others. They differ in comprehensiveness, arrangement, and purpose. The resource is rapidly growing and institutional home pages such as this one cannot maintain it current. Consequently, navigation through variety of resources is advisable. In some areas there are centers or persons that make an effort to keep the developments up to date. Below listed are a few suggested starting points for your Internet searches. The suggestions do not reflect a quality judgement about these or any other site.

ATLA Religion Database (1949-),

General Description (from ATLA Home Page):
The ATLA [and ATLAS - full text journals] Religion Database is an essential tool for the study of religion. It is the premier index to journal articles, book reviews, and collections of essays in all fields of religion. The fact that many publishers solicit the inclusion of their journals in ATLA RDB is indicative of the stature it has achieved in the community of religion scholars. Journals are selected for inclusion according to their scholarly merit and scope. Journals representing all the major religious faiths, major denominations, and numerous language groups are included. ATLA's indexing of multi-author works, such as Festschriften and conference proceedings, is unique among religion databases. Unlike indexes that catalog books of essays as a single entry, ATLA indexes the individual essays in each such work. Includes:

Religion Index One: Periodicals, 1949- (published 1952-). Semi-annual. Cumulates every two years
Religion Index Two: Multi-author Works, 1976- (published 1978-). Annual.
Research in Ministry from 1981-
Index to Book Reviews in Religion, 1986- (published 1989-)

Catholic Church. Pope (1281-1285 : Martin IV)
Processus Martini P. IV contra Petru Arragonae et Palaeologum [computer file]. ca. 1281.
1 scroll : vellum, ca. 8 feet long.
Pope Martin IV was, in fact, the second pope by that name, not the fourth, because "Martin  II" and "Martin III" were incorrect spellings in the official papal lists and should have been "Marinus II" and Marinus III." This explains why the above title includes the words "aliis II."
Contents notes:  Martin IV (pope from 22 Feb 1281 to March 28, 1285) completely reversed the policies of  his predecessors by throwing his support to the king of France. This unusually long and  detailed document issued by the papal chancery against the Emperor of Byzantium Michael  VIII Palaeologos and King Peter III of Aragon illustrates the consequences of this reversal: it   threatens both rulers with excommunication unless they promptly comply with the pope's commands. Both Michael Palaeologos and Peter of Aragon were eventually excommunicated. This conflict between the Holy See with the emperors of the East and the  Kings of Aragon has received much attention by historians.
