Quellenbibliothek

 

Scholars and research students working with written primary sources are well familiar with the problems of availability and accessibility of source materials. The Department of Religious Studies therefore maintains a repository of primary sources (Quellenbibliothek) in the original languages alongside available English and German translations pertaining to a wide range of religious groups and traditions. The collection to be accessed upon request in the Department’s premises is rapidly growing largely thanks to generous donations by individuals and organisations. The sources collected comprise books, magazines, periodicals, pamphlets, and audio-visual media. The Quellenbibliothek is divided by groups/traditions and carries the shelfmark QB. The focus of the collection is upon new and alternative religious currents, most of which are also to be encountered within Austria’s religious landscape in past and present. The individual sections of the Quellenbibliothek are listed below. Sections containing a considerable portion of primary sources are in bold.
