  • 2. Project Runeberg

    Project Runeberg is a Swedish-centered, volunteer-based project that offers in HTML format more than 200 original-language classic works of Nordic literature, music, and the history of science, plus selected texts in Swedish law and in other disciplines. Works represent Sweden (the bulk of the offerings thus far), Norway, Denmark, Finland, and Iceland. The site also provides biographical information and links to additional reading, to other text sites, and to other electronic text projects. This is a large and complex site under continuous development. The home page lists additions year by year, but better access is provided through the subject (tema) index and through the alphabetical list of offerings. There is also an author/title search page with links at the bottom to the online catalogs of the Swedish, Danish, and Finnish national libraries and to the Norwegian universities union catalog (BIBSYS).

  • 3. 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).
