If you have reason to suspect information on any of these sites, please let me know so I can reconsider their inclusion.

If users of this page locate other valuable on-line sources of information they regard as valuable and authentic sources of information on different religious traditions, they may inform me so that I can add them to the list.

As with all sources of information, it is necessary that each author exercise critical discrimination. Authors should weigh the views of different sources, bring opposing viewpoints into relation, and come to a determination about the reliability and utility of different sources. With that caveat, the following on-line sources seem to be generally authoritative or representative of significant perspectives.
