Trial access: Biographisch-Bibliographisches Kirchenlexikon (BBKL)

We regret that we cannot provide off campus access to this resource.

Please send your feedback on the encyclopedia to library@divinity.cam.ac.uk.  Thank you.

The BBKL is the largest ecclesiastical encyclopaedia worldwide, including more than 20.000 entries about deceased personalities of ecclesiastical history – in the area of theology, religion, philosophy, art history and related subjects.

Répertoire des traductions françaises des Pères de l’Église Online

Trial access is now available up to 6 November 2017 to the Répertoire des traductions françaises des Pères de l’Église Online for the University of Cambridge via this link.

The RTF is a unique source of information for the religious literature of Antiquity and the beginning of the Middle Ages. Although some scholarly editions list the French translations (and those in other languages as well), none of them take into account the partial translations. The database offers for the first time a methodical census. Because of its scale, the RTF has no equivalent either in the French-speaking world or in any other linguistic region.

Under the term “Church Fathers” we understand all Christian writers of the first centuries AD – more than 700, including anonymous writings – whose works are preserved in Latin, Greek, Syriac or other languages of the Christian Near East. It is thus the broad definition that has been retained for the present Répertoire des traductions françaises des Pères de l’Église (RTF). The
chronological limit extends to the beginning of the ninth century.

Journal of religion

New on ejournals@cambridge A-Z: The Journal of Religion

The Journal of Religion is one of the publications by which the Divinity School of The University of Chicago seeks to promote critical, hermeneutical, historical, and constructive inquiry into religion. The Journal of Religion covers areas of research with a broad range of implications for scholars of religion, or cross-disciplinary relevance, including theology, religious ethics, and philosophy of religion, as well as articles that approach the role of religion in culture and society from a historical, sociological, psychological, linguistic, or artistic standpoint.
