Encyclopedia of Religion and Society – Hartford Institute for Religion Research - "The Encyclopedia of Religion and Society
marks a unique venture in that it attempts to bring together in a
single-volume compendium a state-of-the-art summary of the insights
gained by the principal social sciences of religion: anthropology,
psychology, and sociology. To do so is to take, admittedly, a
"one-sided" approach to the religion-and-society nexus. One could
perhaps consider an alternative posture, more ethical in nature—namely,
one that considers what religions think about society. This would really
be an encyclopedia of religious social ethics, and it is not within the
scope of this project."

selection from the scrolls which have been the subject of intense public
interest. Over the years questions have be en raised about the scrolls'

which they lived, about the secrets the scrolls reveal, and about the
intentions of the scrolls' custodians in restricting access. The
