The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of
Religious Knowledge is a well-known reference work for
Christianity. This encyclopedia was originally an English
adaptation of German theologian Johann Jakob Herzog's
"Realencyklopadie fur protestantische Theologie und
Kirche." The adaptation began under the leadership of
Philip Schaff, but since then has seen the contributions
of over 100 editors and 600 scholars. It is the most
comprehensive, detailed, and significant encyclopedia for
the Christian religion in the English language. It covers
a wide range of topics, including church history,
comparative religion, geography, doctrinal theology,
archeology, and biblical studies. A powerful reference
tool, the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious
Knowledge contains thousands of entries, which are concise but
informative. Ideal for learning about unfamiliar terms and ideas, these
volumes are an indispensable resource.
