SALT LAKE CITY, April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Faithology, the world's comprehensive online resource for academic and personal religious studies, announces the launch of its updated website. The revised site is better organized, offers easier access to information and enhances user interaction through new and unique online tools. The site is consistently updated and refined to increase its value as a religious study platform.
Faithology currently hosts over 400 peer-reviewed articles on 20 of the world's largest religious traditions, as well as an active forum with over 50,000 posts. The unbiased, vast content library allows beginner and expert users from all walks of life to engage in personal study, academic learning, and thoughtful, stimulating conversation.
"Faithology is a unique and useful contribution to the resources available for teaching world religions," said Muriel Schmid, University of Utah Director of Religious Studies. "It is both descriptive and comparative, and includes many more traditions than we usually see."
Faithology's research articles are compiled by scholars with academic backgrounds in religious studies and are trusted and endorsed by educators. The content is intended to enrich both personal and academic study, and offers new methods of learning. Community pages serve as a public forum where visitors of all faiths and backgrounds are invited to engage in interreligious dialogue.
"In this day and age, everyone should have access to a reliable resource for information on religions at their fingertips," said Brandon Marling, Faithology President and CEO. "The Faithology platform acts as a global classroom for those seeking to expand their knowledge of world religions."
