Patheos offers a wide array of materials useful to students in their research. Extensive encyclopedic Library articles give detailed information about each major religion's history, beliefs, and practices. Topical articles on subjects pertinent to religion in the world today present the perspectives and interests of different traditions, and timely blog postings contribute to the discussion. As you research and write, all of this material should be referenced accordingly. Patheos uses The Chicago Manual of Style as a guideline to citations.
