Through 2734 articles by international scholars, the world's major religions of Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, and Islam are explained in hundreds of articles that are almost like small encyclopaedias themselves. It provides a Who's Who of religious history - the gods and goddesses, the deities and demons, of world mythology, as well as the men and women who have affected the course of religion - and human history - as priests, popes, and prophets; saints, scholars and shamans; reformers and revolutionaries; teachers and theologians.
