Religion Resources from the Newburgh Free Library

Welcome to the Religion Subject Guide of the Newburgh Free Library. We hope the resources linked here will be helpful. The online world of religion is remarkably rich and diverse, and so this guide is always under construction, and we welcome suggestions for useful websites and online resources.  If you would like to see something added to these pages, just send a link to us at, and we'll consider it for inclusion.

Please note that we have recently added a tab about religion and war, with sections on both basic principles, as well as the Russian war against Ukraine.
