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.
Jehovah's Witnesses __ You will find an overview and history. "There are similarities with the Arians of the early church and the Adventist churches. The Witnesses are divided into two classes, the 144,000 "anointed ones" or "inner witnesses", and the more ordinary, "other sheep". They believe in conditional immortality, that the soul cannot exist apart from a body, meaning that humanity faces absolute death, save for the chance of escape offered by the ransom of Christ's death." - From St. Martins College - http://philtar.ucsm.ac.uk/encyclopedia/christ/esp/jw.html
