Internet Encyclopedia of Religion
It is convenient because numerous sources have been compiled into one place under each alphabetical entry, all on a single site - no need to check a bunch of books or slog through search results to get a comprehensive, well-rounded idea of the concept.
The Internet Encyclopedia of Religion, a collection of hundreds of definitions and illustrated encyclopedia articles on religion, spirituality, philosophy, and other supernatural terms and concepts. Here you can find informative, balanced, introductions to religions old and new, sacred places, religious concepts, historical events, doctrines, religious rituals and practices, philosophers, religious leaders, paranormal phenomenon, gods and goddesses, and much more.
The Internet Encyclopedia of Religion has been developed with two main goals in mind: convenience and reliability.

|We have not taken up religion "in itself." Neither the great religious founders nor subsequent generations of theologians are to be found here. When an exception is made to this rule, it is because of a unique encounter with the social sciences, as in the case of Paul Tillich or Gayraud Wilmore. There are certainly great encyclopedias of both philosophy and theology for those who wish to pursue these lines. .|
