To improve your results in HOLLIS+, Academic Search Premier, and other multidisciplinary resources, try adding some of the following terms:

  • Spirituality—[name of country/continent]
  • [name of country/continent]—Religion

  • [name of religion]



The FAS research contacts for religion---Anna Esty, Ramona Islam, and Reed Lowrie---are available to support researchers via email or in-person consultation.

The librarians at the Harvard-Andover Theological Library are also available to help, and the Harvard-Andover Library’s research guides can point you to helpful resources.


Religion Quick Search: a tab on the Harvard-Andover Theological Library’s homepage, this custom tool allows you to search across several databases at once. As with any multi-database search, it’s best to start with just one or two keywords.

ATLA Religion Database indexes scholarly journal articles, books, and essay collections, and covers all religions and all theological points of view. Some content goes back as far as the 19th century; full coverage begins in 1949.
