The links you find here are authored by members of the faith represented or objective third parties..  These are provided as a resource for use in conjunction with the study of the Anthropology of Religions or with cultural or social anthropology.  Inclusion of a link in no way reflects the endorsement or judgment of Archaeolink.com as to a philosophical or spiritual truth.  While I have tried to avoid those resources which represent an attack by one faith on another, by the very nature of the subject, some may slip through as otherwise excellent websites may contain a degree of comparison in order to explain their own positions more clearly.

In the annotations, I will let the site speak for itself as much as possible.

This page could not begin to list the thousands of resources available.  It is designed as a place to 'start.'

A Very Brief Introduction to Christianity __ "Christians follow the teachings of and about Yeshua of Nazareth, commonly referred to as Jesus Christ. (Jesus is the Greek form of Yeshua; Christ is Greek for "the Messiah" or the "anointed one.") Yeshua was a Jewish itinerant preacher who was born circa 4 to 7 BCE. He was executed by the Roman occupying authorities in Palestine, perhaps on Friday, 30-APR-7 CE (i.e. in the spring of the year 30). Most Christians regard him as the son of God. They further believe that he is God, the second person in the Trinity. (The Trinity consists of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; three separate persons, all eternal, all omnipresent, who form a single, unified deity.) Most Christians believe that Jesus co-existed with God before the creation of the world, was born of a virgin, was resurrected three days after his death, and later ascended to Heaven." - From Religioustolerance.org - http://www.religioustolerance.org/chr_intr.htm

The Voice __ "Anthropology is the name of the academic discipline that studies human nature, human institutions and the interpretive myths of human beings. It seeks to understand the operative definitions by which people live. Christian anthropology would, therefore, be an attempt to state the Christian understanding of human nature which inevitably would constitute the primary building block upon which Christian theology would be built."
