Internet Sacred Text Archive

The Internet Sacred Text Archive provides archived, mostly public-domain texts (plus links to some others offsite) of significant primary writings in world religions. Where public-domain primary texts are not available in any number, public-domain secondary material is used to provide overviews of religious beliefs and practices. Most texts are in the English language; some texts are in Sanskrit, Latin, Finnish, and other languages. Texts are arranged in the three main sections: Traditional (Neolithic, Shamanism, Australian, Pacific, African, Ancient Near East, Classical Paganism, Northern European, Egyptian, Native American, Wicca/Neopaganism); Eastern (Shinto, Hinduism, I Ching, Taoism, Confucianism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Jainism); Western (hypertext Bible, Christian texts, Judaism, Mormonism, Bahai'i, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Esoteric, Age of Reason).
