Hints:

This section consists of subjects dealing with religions and religious topics, with several religions having topical subsubheadings. For cases where a topical subsubheading needed is not found under a specific religion, it is recommended that the topical subheading be assigned first, followed by the specific religion to which this topic pertains. For example, "RELIGION / Fundamentalism" would be assigned first, followed by "RELIGION / Christianity / General" or "RELIGION / Islam / General" (as appropriate).

Use subjects in the BIBLES section for versions of the Bible and use subjects beginning with "RELIGION / Biblical Biography", "RELIGION / Biblical Commentary", "RELIGION / Biblical Criticism & Interpretation", "RELIGION / Biblical Meditations", "RELIGION / Biblical Reference", or "RELIGION / Biblical Studies" for works about the Bible.
