Q. Theology Bibliography Assignment
Below is a guide for tips on completing the theology bibliography assignment.
1. List a bibliography on a theological discipline.
We have bibliographies on the Divinity Research Guide (http://libguides.regent.edu/divinity?hs=a). Find "Bibliographies," the 5th blue tab in the middle of the screen to find several thematic bibliographies, such as Systematic Theology by Doctrinal Persuasion.
2. A dictionary of theology or a theological discipline.
If you search "theological dictionary" in the Summon tool, which is the search bar in the middle of the Library homepage (www.regent.edu/lib), you should find several results. You can click on the title of one of the dictionaries and an option will be provided on the right side of the screen to cite the resource.
3. A book of theology written by a patristic writer after the council of Nicaea (translated in English).
For numbers 3-8, I recommend looking up specific scholars, (ie: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patristics) then searching for his/her work the Library catalog by author (http://library.regent.edu/search/a). You can find theologians by a simple Google search (ie: "medieval/scholastic scholar), or you may find these theology-based websites from the Divinity Research Guide to be helpful: http://libguides.regent.edu/content.php?pid=207432&sid=4922460.
4. A book of theology written by a medieval/scholastic author in Latin or Greek.
5. A book of theology written by a Protestant theologian of the 20th century.
6. A book of theology written by a Pentecostal/Charismatic author.
7. A book of theology written by a Roman Catholic theologian.
8. An essay of a contemporary theologian from a non-English speaking country.
9. An article of theology in an English academic journal of theology.
10. An article of theology in an academic journal in a language other than English.
I recommend using the Atla database to search for articles on theology (http://0-eds.b.ebscohost.com.library.regent.edu/ehost/search/advanced?sid=fc50ced1-cd5f-4d86-a88c-e861d6ed8d2b%40sessionmgr112&vid=0&hid=112). You can type "theology" or another search term in the search box, then scroll down to find an option to select the language at the bottom left before hitting search. German is a common language for theological studies, so you may have good luck finding an article in that language. But feel free to find one that interests you! ATLA also provides citation information if you click on the title of the article and click the "cite" button on the left side of the screen.
- Thank you Melody - this is great!
