Encyclopedia of the Bible and its reception

Comprises an encyclopedia of both the reception history of the Bible in its "different canonic forms in Judaism and Christianity" and of the "current state of knowledge on the origins and development of the Bible." This is a specialist work designed to orient researchers by retrospectively summarizing "major themes and issues" in the field and pointing forward to future trajectories for research. This resource is an ongoing project and additional volumes can be expected for some time to come (volumes 1 and 2 have not exhausted alphabetical entries for the A's). As of this writing (May 2011), progress towards completion is proceeding incrementally (and sadly, behind schedule). When it is completed, this should be a resource of tremendous breadth and depth. It is capable of both keyword and volume content searching. Should be useful to Biblical researchers across a wide range of interests, not just to those interested in the reception history of the Bible. Walter de Gruyter

Encyclopedia of women & Islamic cultures

Provides access to a specialist encyclopedia focused on women's studies and Islamic cultures. The title of this work intends a broader scope than it actually specifies. For this work isn't concerned only with women and women's issues in countries where Muslim culture has historically predominated, it is also concerned with issues where Muslim culture has been a significant minority presence within the domains of other majority faiths. It is further concerned with women as adherents and outsiders to Islamic faith in cultures where Islam has been a cultural influence. So this work covers an enormous amount of ground. It is not surprising, therefore, that the print version runs to five volumes with two supplements. Written primarily with the needs of the specialist researcher in mind, the articles may still be profitably mined by researchers with more general purposes in view. Searchable either by specific volumes or through its "Advanced Search" keyword interface, the researcher has the option of searching it like a database, or serendipitously, like a print encyclopedia.This resource should be useful to a wide cross section of researchers: students of women's issues in Islamic cultures, students of Islam as a minority culture, students of minorities in predominantly Islamic cultures...to name just a few. Covers all eras of Islamic civilization from the 7th century to the present. Brill
