Miscellaneous Short Christian Texts

These files are articles and translations of short texts related to Christianity taken from various public domain sources, primarily scholarly journals. Because (mainstream) Christianity is the religion that gets the lion's share of internet coverage, and because the nature of is to present texts that are not otherwise available, most of these articles approach Christianity rather obliquely.

For journal title abbreviations, see the Journals page, where all the articles (including non-Christian) are organized according to their sources.
