The links provided here are for the purpose of having online material where you can learn what each faith has to say about itself. While these links are not about "religious anthropology" per se, having a knowledge of what each faith believes can be an important tool in many studies of the anthropology of religion. 

In the review annotations, I will let the site speak for itself as much as possible.  This page covers what most consider to be two different denominations,  "African Methodist Episcopal" and "African Methodist Episcopal Zion."
