The JSTOR Religion & Theology Collection covers the history and philosophy of religious thought spanning traditions, periods, and critical approaches. The collection contains more than 80 titles, drawn exclusively from existing JSTOR Arts & Sciences collections. It supports religious studies research as well as scholarship in archaeology, literature, philosophy, and more.

 

Foundations in General Religion

More than 30 journals in the collection are dedicated to the general study of religion. These include the Journal of the American Academy of Religion, praised by Ulrich’s as a “must-have for religious studies scholars,” as well as the Journal of Religion (University of Chicago Press) and Religious Studies (Cambridge University Press).

The collection also boasts clusters in Judaic studies (AJS Review, Modern Judaism), Islamic studies (Islamic Studies, Journal of Qur'anic Studies), and African and Asian religions. Theology journals are well represented, including the American Journal of Theology & Philosophy and the Harvard Theological Review.

 

Religion & Theology offers more than 15 journals whose archives on JSTOR extend over 100 years. More than a dozen journals are from outside of the United States, including clusters from the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany, and Italy.
