Finding good theology resources on the Internet can be a bit of a hit and miss affair. There are a large number of religious sites around, and indeed there are many good sites for the serious study of theology, but as is often the case with the Internet, locating those sites can be a little difficult.
Generally speaking, it is not difficult to find ancient texts and ecclesiastical documents. There are a number of discussion forums for those interested in particular theological subjects. There are also a number of online theological journals. Contemporary theological writings are not so abundant, mainly because of royalty issues.
The links below are by no means exhaustive. We have tried to select a few good sites which provide links to a good selection of theological sites and resources, and which are reasonably well structured. Obviously we cannot take responsibility for the contents of these sites. There is a lot of good stuff around on the Internet, but there is also a great deal of rubbish!
If you have any suggestions for other sites to be linked off this page please Fr Stephen Dingley.
- Bibliographies for Theology A fairly extensive bibliography covering particularly Scripture and the history of theology. Extensively udated in 2004.
- The Catechism of the Catholic Church Provided by the Parish of St Charles Boromeo in Picayune, MS.
- The Centro Pro Unione Website A very comprehensive collection of links to ecumenical documents.
- CCEL – Christian Classics Ethereal Library Another long-standing site. A large collection of christian classics from the Fathers onward, as well as links to several Bibles and much more besides. You can also buy the site on CD Rom for a few pounds.
- COPAC (Combined Online Public Access Catalogue) Unified access to the catalogues of some of the largest university research libraries in the UK and Ireland.
- EWTN library A good source of Catholic documents.
- Office for Social Justice Of the Archdiocese of St Paul and Minneapolis. Extensive documentation of Catholic Social Teaching, including concordances.
- The New Testament Gateway Virtually a one-stop shop for New Testament links on the web. Provided by Mark Goodacre, a notable Scripture scholar at Birmingham university (that is Birmingham, England, not Alabama!). They don’t get much better than this.
- The Old Testament Gateway Seeks to do for the Old Teatament what Mark Goodacre did for the New. Not as smart but plenty of stuff there.
- The Vatican Web site The Vatican II documents can be found here.
Google Scholar is an academic related site that might be worth using for bibliographical research.
