World Religions:

Inclusive

  • Sacred The homepage of this very recent online collection of sacred texts from the British Library doesn't mince any words, declaring this clutch of materials to be The world's greatest collection of Jewish, Christian, and Muslim holy books. The subtitle to this remarkable collection is Discover what we share, and that is certainly an apt phrase to describe this moving online collection, which is intended to complement the in situ exhibit. First off, there are the texts themselves, which can be viewed in their entirety, and examined at leisure. There is a complete chronological list, a list organized by faith, and several editors' lists, such as Kings and Queens and Pictures and Portraits. In keeping with the strong online traditions of like-minded exhibits at the British Library, visitors can take in some video highlights, including the Sufi dancer Zia Azazi and they may also watch a scribe demonstrating how old sacred texts were crafted. Additionally, there are several dozen podcasts that deal with the illumination of sacred texts and discussions on the relationship between medicine and various traditions of faith. Overall, the site is powerfully moving, inclusive, and worthy of repeat visits. (LII)
