Ars Disputandi (AD) is an online journal (ISSN: 1566-5399) devoted to topics surrounding the philosophy of religion. The website publishes articles, book reviews, literature surveys, and bibliographies. Past articles have covered topics such as feminism and philosophy of religion, the origin of evil, and evolution. Ars Disputandi aims to be a lively online forum for the exchange of ideas, rather than a traditional journal. In keeping with this aim, the site is not published in the form of distinct chronological issues: new articles are published instantly on editorial approval. This site will be of most interest to those working in philosophy, theology and related areas.
The Australasian Philosophy of Religion Association (APRA) was set up to promote and disseminate scholarly work in the field of philosophy of religion. It aims also to build stronger network amongst scholars working in the field. This homepage contains a section which lists the names and contact details of Australasian philosophers of religion. These are organised according to their institutional affiliation. There are also details on news and events related to philosophy of religion, both in the Australasian region and beyond. Information is given on how to join their mailing list, and links are provided to the homepages of relevant associations and journals. A search engine is available. This website is maintained by Charles Sturt University, Australia.
The British Society for the Philosophy of Religion (BSPR) is the UK's primary scholarly association for the discussion of this subject area. The society's website provides information about BSPR activities, the chief of which is a major conference taking place every two years. Membership information, details of the committee, and a copy of the society's constitution are also available. At time of writing, there were plans to add a discussion section, which would include comment on recent literature in philosophy of religion.
This is the homepage of the Canadian Society of Christian Philosophers (La société canadienne des philosophes chrétiens et chrétiennes) (CSCP-SCPC). The society aims to be a forum for the discussion of inter-related topics in religion and philosophy. It invites those within any Christian denomination or none to attend its annual meetings and contribute to its bi-annual newsletter. This website is well-designed, with a useful split-screen format to facilitate easy access to the main menu. It is broken into sections which include: activities; newsletters; member interests; membership; publications; and related links. The website is accessible in French and English, and all information is available free of charge. The site makes use of frames. A search engine is available.
The Centre of Theology and Philosophy (COTP) is a research centre based in the Department of Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Nottingham. This homepage contains information about the centre's staff, fellows and members; courses they offer and the conferences they organise. The site, which should be of particular interest to those pursuing Religious Studies degree programmes, also provides resources like online papers (available in Word and PDF); a discussion forum; a news section; podcasts; reviews of recent publications in the areas of theology and philosophy; and links to relevant websites. The centre is directed by John Millbank, Professor in Religion, Politics and Ethics. He is also the author of most of the online papers made available on the site.
'Divine punishment as a problem in theodicy' is an etext version of a 17,000 word dissertation on the problem of evil. The author considers a range of different possible models of divine punishment, and asks whether the concept of punishment, which seems to involve deliberately inflicted suffering, is compatible with that of a loving God. She argues towards the conclusion that God does indeed punish, but that divine punishment is a metaphor. This is a student dissertation (written by Roberta Allen while at Westminster College, Oxford), but the piece is nevertheless scholarly in tone, and deals with an aspect of the problem of evil that is often overlooked in the standard literature on the subject. Hence this site may be of interest to philosophical theologians working in the area of theodicy (that is, the attempt to defend God against the charge of being unjust), both because it it raises an often neglected issue for consideration, and because it provides numerous bibliographical references for those wishing to pursue the subject further.
The website of the Canadian-based Dooyeweerd Centre for Christian Philosophy is dedicated to the life and works of the Dutch Christian philosopher Herman Dooyeweerd (1894-1977). The site contains: a brief biography of Dooyeweerd; access to the discussion forum "Thinknet" for those interested in his work; a thoroughly annotated bibliography (including excerpts) of Dooyeweerd's written works, and information about ordering his works online; and other related links of interest to Dooyeweerd scholars. The site is straightforward to navigate, and all information is available in English and free of charge. It is a good source of information on this prolific and far-ranging writer.
This is the homepage of the distinguished American philosopher of religion, Dr William Lane Craig. The site offers transcripts of debates he has conducted with eminent scholars, and online versions of several dozen of his articles. Twelve debates about the existence of God or related topics are recorded. The articles section contains papers in five subject areas: the existence of God; divine omniscience; divine eternity; the historical Jesus; and Christian particularism (that is, discussion of the contention that Christianity is the only religion which can offer salvation). A link is also provided to Craig's Reasonable Faith website, which offers further relevant material. An extremely useful resource for anyone interested in the philosophy of religion.
The Evangelical Philosophical Society, founded in 1974, is an organisation dedicated to Christian philosophical scholarship in both the church and academy. The Society holds an annual meeting in conjunction with the Evangelical Theological Society and the American Academy of Religion, and publishes the annual journal, Philiosophia Christi. The site provides access to the journal's homepage from where visitors may view the table of contents and the Editor's Introduction to all past issues, as well as their submission policy. The site also contains a number of articles and provides information about recent news and events. The resource is well presented and accessible.
Faith and Reason is the online home page of the PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) television programme of the same name. Faith and Reason was dedicated to exploring the relationship between science and religion, and conducted interviews with many of the world's leading scientists and theologians. Interviewees included, for example: Richard Dawkins; Robert Russell; George Coyne; Francis Collins; Steven Weinberg; Nancy Murphy; and others. The site makes available the full transcripts of the interviews, and also provides brief overviews of many key topics at the crossroads of science and religion, including: evolutionary biology; technology; cosmology; and genetics. Additional resources include audio recordings, suggestions for further reading, and a glossary. The site is well presented, accessible, and a valuable resource for all who take an interest in the relationship between science and religion.
The Gifford Lectures website offers an online database of books derived from the prestigious lecture series of the same name. Since 1888, lectures have been delivered at four Scottish universities (Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and St. Andrews) on the subject of natural theology (that is, the part of theology that depends on human observation and reasoning rather than on divine revelation). The subject has been interpreted broadly, and topics covered include: anthropological religion; science and religion; agnosticism; religious experience; faith; and religious epistemology. The site offers details of each series of lectures, including the title, an abstract, and a biography of the lecturer. Most Gifford lecture series gave rise to books, and the site offers searchable full text versions of over a hundred volumes (though older works are more likely to be available than newer ones, presumably for reasons relating to copyright). With authors including Emil Brunner, Rudolf Bultmann, John Macquarrie, and Richard Swinburne, this is a valuable resource for theologians and philosophers of religion.
Hortulus is an online medieval studies journal, published annually since 2005 by graduate students, for a graduate student audience. The journal is peer-reviewed, and claims an "international board of graduate students", although the staff and contributors listed appear to come mainly from North America. The published articles are of a high standard and cover a broad spectrum of subjects, including among other things: "Power and the Subversive Body in Chaucer's Wife of Bath"; "The Music of Dante's 'Purgatorio'"; "Astrology of the Arabic World and Albertus Magnus"; and "Seeing the World with the Eyes of God: the Vision Implied by the Medieval Icon". Hortulus is accompanied by a smaller magazine section entitled "Lighter Fare", which attempts to entertain and educate in tandem with the more serious scholarly tone of the main journal. "Lighter Fare" includes: interviews with medieval scholars and other professionals; light-hearted articles on anything from Gregorian chant to the production of manuscripts; book reviews; and reports on conferences and events of interest to medievalists. The website is easy to navigate, and allows readers to respond to articles directly. However, the site's reliance on images and tables may present access problems for some users.
This is the home page of the Howard and Edna Hong Kierkegaard Library, a building that holds over 11,000 books and 3,500 journal articles by or about the nineteenth-century Danish philosopher and theologian Soren Kierkegaard, as well as related writers. The library is located at St Olaf College, USA. Kierkegaard himself (1813-1855) is best known as the founding father of the existentialist movement in contemporary philosophy (existentialism: broadly the doctrine that our thinking should proceed from the starting point of the realities of human existence as we encounter it, rather than from any other, more abstract consideration). His best known philosophical work is 'Fear and Trembling'. This website provides information about the library, its history, programs, collections, publications and staff, as well as a page of information on the life and work of Kierkegaard himself. Visitors can access their newsletters without charge. There are also hyperlinks to other Kierkegaard resources hosted elsewhere on the web. The curator of the library is Gordon Marino.
'Images of St Augustine' is a website maintained by John Immerwahr, Professor of Philosophy at Villanova University, USA. It provides a brief narrative of the life of Saint Augustine of Hippo (354-430). The materials are offered in two sections. The first presents a selection of images, which are accompanied by narration, of the frescoes painted by Benozzo Gozzoli in the Church of Saint Augustine in San Gimignano, Italy. The scenes are on the following themes: School, College, Mother of Tears; Rome; The Teacher; To Milan; Arrival in Milan; St Ambrose; Conversion; Baptism; Seashell; Death of Monica (his mother); and (St Augustine's) Funeral. The second section contains a number of images from the stained glass windows in the St Thomas of Villanova Church on the campus of Villanova University. The scenes here are on the following themes: Conversion; Baptism; Vision; Death; Writing Confessions; Pelagianism; Sea Shell (an ancient symbol of baptism); and Giving the Rule. This is an interesting and engaging resource for those seeking an introduction to the life and teachings of St Augustine.
The website of the Jacques Maritain Center, based at the University of Notre Dame, aims to make available information and resources on the work of the French Catholic philosopher, Jacques Maritain. Maritain was a paradigmatic Catholic philosopher who sought to provide a model of the way in which religious belief and other spheres of human life can be interwoven. He was deeply influenced by St. Thomas Aquinas and accepted the Catholic Church's recommendation of Aquinas as its master in theology and philosophy. The Center exists to contribute to the increasing influence of the philosophy of Jacques Maritain. The Center's site contains an extensive range of information on the life and work of Maritain. Exerpts from his work are available online along with useful bibliographic information. In addition, there is: an index of Maritain's papers; an index of papers by Yves R. Simon and Charles de Koninck; a list of books and dissertations on Maritain; conference details; a Latin dictionary and grammar aid; a French dictionary and grammar aid; a Greek lexicon; and an image gallery.
The website of the Lonergan Research Institute, based at Regis College in the University of Toronto, provides information about the Institute's work of preserving, promoting, developing, and implementing the work of Canadian Jesuit philosopher and theologian Bernard Lonergan (1904-1984). The Institute's chief project is the publication of a 25 volume critical edition of Lonergan's work; other ventures include: the preservation and cataloguing of Lonergan's papers; digitisation of recordings of lectures by Lonergan; a series of books focused on Lonergan's work; and a quarterly newsletter (copies of which are available via the site). A link is also provided to the website of the Bernard Lonergan Archive, which offers electronic versions of many of Lonergan's academic papers.
The Lonergan Website (LWS) aims to encourage collaborative study of the works of Bernard Lonergan (1904-1984), the Jesuit theologian and philosopher. The site provides an extensive range of material to assist Lonergan scholars. Key resources offered include: the quarterly Lonergan Studies Newsletter, which provides details of recent work in the field; reviews of recent Lonergan-related books; links to online articles and other works (some material is hosted on-site, and some elsewhere on the Web, although unfortunately some of the external links are broken); interviews with Lonergan scholars; and a substantial bibliography of works by and about Lonergan. The site also offers information about relevant upcoming events; a glossary of key terms used by Lonergan; details of Lonergan-l, an email discussion forum; annotated links to relevant websites; and a set of FAQs about Lonergan's life and work
This Internet resource provides German-language information pertaining to the life and work of the Jewish theologian, philosopher, bible translator, and proponent of the chassidic tradition (a Judaic religious movement), Martin Buber (1878-1965). An abridged version of the site is available in English. The main attraction of the site is the sizeable collection of electronic secondary texts relating to the work of Buber. Equally useful is the section on Buber's life and work, which consists of an informative overview of his works and main intellectual pursuits and achievements. Themes include Jewish-Christian theological debates. Also available here is an extensive range of excerpts from Buber's works - a greater number of these are available in the German language version of the site than in the English. Other notable features of the site include a chronology of Buber's life; a bibliography of secondary literature on Buber; and a collection of links related to Buber.
The Medieval Logic and Philosophy website is the work of Paul Vincent Spade (Professor of Philosophy at Indiana University). Through a compilation of PDF-files (often from Spade's own teaching resources), this site offers a solid introduction to major philosophical discussions of the Middle Ages. A wide range of topics are addressed including, but not limited to: universals; metaphysics; and the trinity. Spade also touches upon such authors as: Richard Rufus; Aquinas; and Boethius. Texts by these authors and others (located under 'Stuff to Download') will be of considerable interest to undergraduate students coming to grips with a specific question in medieval philosophy. However, both postgraduates and lecturers may benefit from the many primary resources available or be interested to observe how Spade has structured and selected his own teaching materials.For those really struggling with a particular issue or requiring more information on a particular topic, there is an extensive collection of annotated links on medieval resources and materials. As of March 2007the site will no longer be updated, but the existing information remains available for use.
The Michael Sudduth's Analytic Philosophy of Religion Website provides access to numerous interesting resources on the philosophy of religion. It is maintained by Dr Michael Sudduth, a Christian philosopher in the analytic tradition who teaches in the Philosophy Department at San Francisco State University (SFSU). The site provides access to his published and unpublished works, and to course materials he uses at the university. Access is also given to course materials on subjects he has taught elsewhere. Further, there are links that take readers to a discussion forum; to Sudduth's website on philosopher Alvin Plantinga; and to other websites dealing with the philosophy of religion; general philosophy; theology; and science.
Nietzsche Gesellschaft (Nietzsche Society) is a German-based organisation that aims to promote philosophical and interdisciplinary discussion of the life, works and influence of the 19th-century German philosopher, Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). In addition, the Society seeks to further the maintenance of the places associated with Nietzsche in the area consisting of the German federal states of Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia, as well as of his estate, literary or otherwise. The website contains information pertaining to the Society's Nietzsche workshops; its journal, Nietzscheforschung, which contains, amongst other articles, the contributions of the Nietzsche workshops as well as the annual meetings' research programs; and the Society's literary prize of Sachsen-Anhalt, which is presented in alternate years as the Wilhelm-Mueller and the Friedrich-Nietzsche Prizes respectively. The prize is awarded for a philosophical or scientific work in the German language which deals with philosophical subject matter and problems, and is worth a substantial amount.
'Notes on the Existence of God' was written by Don Mannison (formerly an academic at the University of Queensland, Australia) shortly before his death in 1989. The paper, which is divided into five parts, is a philosophical examination of belief in God. He explained in the first part that "what is of interest here is not the causal background of an individual's (or of a group's) religious convictions, but rather, an examination of the nature and implications of the beliefs themselves, and the possible type of epistemological foundation they might have". He dedicated the second part of the paper to traditional arguments for the existence of God and here he looked at the cosmological, design, and ontological arguments. The third part deals with "problems arising from the traditional concept of God" and the fourth concentrates on the argument for the existence of God from "personal experience", before bringing the discussion to a close in the fifth section with some concluding observations. An interesting resource for students of religion.
The Owen Barfield World Wide Website is devoted to the English intellectual and literary figure, Owen Barfield (1898-1997). Known for his work on language and the evolution of consciousness, Barfield is perhaps best known as a follower and interpreter of the religious philosophy of Rudolf Steiner. He was also a member of the "Inklings" circle (along with C. S. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien) which met in Lewis' rooms in Oxford between 1922 and 1945. Resources available on the site include: bibliographies of his works; a Barfield timeline; information about his published works; photographs; and a lexicon of terms associated with Barfield studies. The site is an invaluable resource for enthusiasts and scholars of Barfield.
The Paideia Project On-Line is dedicated to the Proceedings of 20th World Congress of Philosophy at Boston University, held between 10 and 15 August 1998. The most substantial aspect of the site is the Paideia Archive, which makes available almost a thousand papers presented at the conference. The archive arranges papers by subject matter in an orderly and user-friendly manner, and the coverage is fairly comprehensive. Beyond the traditional philosophical categories, there are sections on the philosophy of sport, education, children, gender, and literature, plus regional entries focusing on African, Asian, American, and Latin American philosophy. The papers themselves are in printer-friendly HTML format and, with a few exceptions, are in English. They are written by professional philosophers and graduate students who attended the Congress. There is a sophisticated search function for finding particular topics in the archive. This resource will be of primary use to research students and faculty members, especially those investigating the less conventional or widespread areas of philosophy.
This website allows access to an electronic text of Blaise Pascal's 'Pensées' of 1660. The 'Pensées' is the French mathematician and philosopher's published thoughts on several topics, predominantly religious, which mostly take the form of short aphoristic statements. The work is perhaps best known for 'Pascal's Wager', where the author reasons that it is wise to believe in God as one loses nothing thereby, whilst one stands to lose all by not believing. Biblical references within the text are hyperlinked to footnotes providing the source of the reference, but otherwise the text is presented without additions. The translation used is that of W. F. Trotter, first published in 1904.
'Philosophers' Criticisms of Anselm's Ontological Argument for the Being of God' is a compilation of fully sourced e-text versions of extracts from the writing various philosophers put forward in response to St. Anselm's ontological argument for the existence of God. The resource was compiled by Paul Halsall, a professional historian and editor of the Internet Medieval Sourcebook, of which this site is a part. This Sourcebook itself is hosted by the website of Fordham University, USA. St. Anselm (1033-1109) proposed the ontological argument as an attempt to prove by reasoning that God exists. In broad terms, the argument states that since God is defined as the greatest conceivable being, and since a being that exists in reality is greater than a being who exists merely in the imagination, God must therefore necessarily exist. A similar version of the ontological argument was later put forward by French philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650), and this is also provided by this resource. In total, the resource provides responses by nine philosophers. They are: René Descartes; Benedict Spinoza; John Locke; Gottfried W. Leibniz; Immanuel Kant; Georg W.F. Hegel; J.A. Dorner; Lotze; and Robert Flint. The site is easy enough on the eye, with medium-size black type on a white background, and is simple to navigate, with hyperlinks to the individual responses. Those new to the subject should note that this site offers the primary texts only, without additional exposition or commentary. Nevetheless, this site would be of use to any student or scholar studying the ontological argument who wants quick access to some of the major responses to Anselm.
Edited by Dr Richard T. Nolan, the Philosophy and Religion website includes a diverse collection of materials, some written by Nolan himself, and some by other authors. There are: articles relating to issues in philosophy (particularly philosophy of religion), theology, biblical thought, and ethics; two complete books ('The Diaconate Now' and 'Living Issues in Ethics'); the scholarly papers of contemporary philosophers of religion Edmond La B. Cherbonnier and Frank G. Kirkpatrick; a section dealing with Christology within a Semitic context; brief items for the novice in philosophical, theological and religious studies; reflective homilies; Constructive Criticisms and Commentary on the Institutional Church; and information about the Anglican liturgy and beliefs.
Philosophy of Religion .Info is a collection of introductory articles on key topics in philosophy of religion and Christian ethics. The site covers the major arguments for and against the existence of God (plus arguments for agnosticism), and also offers brief biographies of central historical and modern figures in the field. Ethical topics covered include natural law, divine command theory, relativism, and just war theory. The author takes a balanced approach, giving the arguments on both sides of most major questions, rather than coming down in favour of any specific position. The site is easily navigable, and is a useful resource for anyone embarking on the study of philosophy of religion.
This website provides the text of an online Philosophy of Religion textbook written by Dr Philip A. Pecorino, a professor of philosophy at Queensborough Community College, New York. Religions which received coverage in the text include: Buddhism; Christianity; Confucianism; Hinduism; Islam; Jainism; Judaism; Shintoism; Sikhism; Taoism; and Zoroastrianism. The work is divided into ten chapters: Overview; Religions of the World; Science and Religion; Arguments for the Existence of God: Reason; Arguments for the Existence of God: Experience; The Problem of Evil; The Existence of Souls and the Resurrection; Religious Language and Worldviews; Religion, Morality and Ethics; and The Essence of Religion: A Definition of Religion. Each chapter is divided further into a number of sections and references are occasionally provided to relevant online resources including podcasts. The site also contains discussion topics which would be useful for those teaching the course, as well as a bibliography and access to internet reference works and other websites.
The Philosophy of Religion Mind Mapping Project is an online resource hosted by the University of Glasgow. It offers a diagrammatic representation of the key topics in philosophy of religion. The main navigation map offers ten branches (including topics such as reason and religious belief; evil; religious diversity; and various argument for the existence of God), each of which can be clicked for further detail. The left-hand sidebar includes an Attachments section, which offers links to other relevant online resources. The interface takes a little getting used to, but the site does provide a good overview of the structure of the central debates in this area. For those who find the mind map format unhelpful, a text version is also available.
The Prosblogion is a group blog devoted to philosophy of religion. Over twenty philosophers are listed as contributors, ranging from graduate students to well-established scholars such as Jonathan Kvanvig and Keith DeRose. A wide range of issues within the sphere of philosophy of religion are covered, plus related areas such as doctrine, free will, and religious ethics. The majority of posts offer substantive philosophical discussion (which contributors and readers are encouraged to continue in the comments), but the blog also offers subject-related news, calls for papers, and links to other sites which may be of interest. A stimulating site for those with an interest in this area.
Published by the Society of Online Christian Theology and Philosophy (SOCTP) and edited by Scott David Foutz (North Park University), 'Quodlibet' is an electronic journal dedicated to the scholarly examination of both historical and modern Christian theology, covering a host of topics under this banner. In theory, the journal appears quarterly, but a glance at the archives reveals that at various times it has more or less frequent than this. Articles within this publication are selected and peer reviewed by the editorial board. All papers published since the journal was founded in 1999 are available through the online archives, which can be sorted by date, author, or title.
The Radical Academy is a vast website that provides information on an array of subjects, as well as acting as a gateway to other sites. The emphasis in on philosophy, but politics and political theory, religion, education, and the sciences are all covered. From the Academy's home page one can connect to sections providing resources on a range of subjects, mostly related to philosophy, including: collections of essays by the Academy's president, Jonathan Dolhenty, and by Mortimer J. Adler (1902-2001); a glossary of philosophical terms; and various sections on the history of philosophy and on individual philosophers, such as Thomas Aquinas (ca. 1225-1274). The Resource Centers section offers substantial collections of links to off-site resources, categorised by subject area.
Additionally, there are plenty of opportunities to become actively involved with the site, in the form of blogs, forums, a guestbook, and a chance to ask the Academy a question. News, events, and other items of topical interest are also supplied. Some of the in-house resources suggest that for the most part the site is being pitched at a general or introductory level. The site makes use of frames. Because of the scale of the website and the presence of a considerable amount of advertising, the site is not at first glance easy to navigate, and individual pages are slow to load. The persistent explorer will, however, be rewarded with a potential wealth of information.
The Saint Anselm Journal is a refereed online journal that publishes original articles, discussion papers, and book reviews that examine the life, thought, teachings, and influence of the Medieval Christian philosopher and theologian Saint Anselm of Canterbury.

Many of its articles first appeared in colloquia or conferences hosted or sponsored by the institute. The journal was first published in Autumn 2003, and since 2005 it has appeared biannually, in spring and autumn. Current and previous editions are freely available without subscription as PDF files, and require Adobe Acrobat Reader software to be viewed. The site, which is simply designed and easy to navigate, contains information on journal editorial policy and submissions, and an index of authors published by the journal.
This is the website of the Søren Kierkegaard Society, founded by Robert L. Perkins in 1979, and dedicated to encouraging scholarship and discussion related to the life and thought of the highly influential 19th century Danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855).
