Religious and Theological Abstracts (R&TA) – the database that “tell[s] you what the title doesn’t say” – is now available to searchers on the Crown Library’s A-Z List of Databases and Databases by Subject. This publication is available exclusively in digital format, as they recently ceased publishing in print.
Thousands of entries are added each year, covering articles in more than 500 scholarly journals from around the world. This resource provides English-language reviews of articles in English, Hebrew, Afrikaans, and major European languages. Entries are categorized as Biblical, Theological, Historical, or Practical. A Scripture search is also available.
It will be useful to note that this database includes citations that the American Theological Library Association (ATLA)’s abstracting source does not. -Tineka Wireman
