There is probably more general theology
material available on the Internet than is commercially produced. Most of the
resources at present are either bible-centred or overlap with, for example, the
teaching of classics or literature. James O'Donnell's name appears again in
this section for his course on Augustine which included an electronic mail
discussion list where students and international academics met and discussed

- The Bible Gateway
This site enables the user to search a variety of bibles (including German and
Latin) for verses or keywords. Its application in the classroom may be a bit

Networking in Israel
This page is similar to the Old English page mentioned in the literature
Ancient Manuscripts by Timothy Seid (Brown University). The main focus of
this hypertext prsentation is on the process used to study the ancient
manuscripts upon which the New Testament is based. While the language discussed
is Greek, almost everything is explained with transliterations into English
and, where applicable, translations from standard English Bibles. The WWW
version has been adapted from a Hypercard stack which is still available from
the Humanist discussion list archives.
- Augustine on the
The World Wide Web page used by Jim O'Donnell to teach a course on Augustine.
Included are Latin and English selections from Augustine's work.
- Robert Kraft on the
Robert Kraft, also at UPENN, teaches a number of courses on early Judaism and
Christianity. He uses the Web and a gopher server to provide his students with
the relevant primary sources. The directory of course materials also include
notes for an introduction to humanities computing. Bob Kraft is probably best
known on the Internet for his work in connection with the
Centre for the Computer Analysis of
Texts (CCAT) which contains an archive of biblical and religious texts
(also classical, renaissance, and modern).
- The ECOLE Initiative
(The Early Church On-line Encyclopedia Initiative)
If its stated aims are successful then this promises to be a valuable hypertext
encyclopedia for research and teaching alike.

Theology course materials at the University of Notre Dame

produced by Jeffrey VanderWilt and Kern Trembath
