Religions of America presents scholars and researchers with more than 660,000 pages of content that follows the development of religions and religious movements born in the United States from 1820 to 1990. Derived from numerous collections, most notably the American Religions Collection at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Religions of America traces the history and unique characteristics of movements and religious groups’ expressions of faith through manuscripts, pamphlets, newsletters, ephemera, and visuals.
This month, ccAdvisor published a review of Religions of America:
“Religions of America makes available, in one place, many valuable primary sources one could not otherwise access without visiting several archives in person. Multiple advanced search options make it possible to zero in on relevant documents and publications, a task that would be difficult in browsing the original documents within archives . . . No other major commercial vendor offers a primary source collection on this exact topic.”
