  • Internet Sacred Text Archive The world's philosophical and religious traditions have found a fine home at the Internet Sacred Text Archive, which, as the homepage notes, is "a quiet place in cyberspace devoted to religious tolerance and scholarship." Working together with a number of colleagues and volunteers, JB Hare has compiled this vast archive of sacred and philosophical texts from a number of public- domain sources and placed them on the site. What makes the site so intriguing is that Hare has placed detailed information about the sources and standards that have been deployed for each separate project, which will be of great interest to scholars. While the entire site can be searched, there is much to be learned by looking through the topics listed on the main page, which range from Atlantis to Zoroastrianism. Each separate topic contains a number of accurately transcribed (and some times, translated) primary and secondary documents, such as first-hand collections of oral traditions. For persons looking for their own copy of the material contained on the site, a CD-ROM is available for purchase as well.

  • Monastic Matrix In the past several decades, there has been an increased interest in the participation of Christian women in the religion and society of medieval Europe, and the Monastic Matrix website (last reviewed by The Scout Report on March 24, 1998) is a collaborative effort that seeks "to collect and make available all existing data about all professional Christian women in Europe between 400 and 1600 CE." The site is divided into eight sections, which contain materials on the type of religious communities formed by women, visual materials relevant to these types of communities, and a rather detailed bibliographic section that currently contains over 8000 citations of materials related to medieval religious women. The bibliography is well organized, as visitors may elect to browse the citations by author, title, keyword, type of work (monograph, article, etc.), or language.
