With the ATLA Historical Monographs Collection (11 Series), religion and theology scholars can focus their research on the era and topics that most closely fit their fields of study. Eleven thematic series provides researchers with specialized content spanning from the 13th century through 1922.

The majority of content dates from the 19th and early 20th centuries, a time of great doctrinal, social and organizational turmoil and upheaval in American culture, making this collection an invaluable resource for scholars seeking to understand not only religious thought during this time period, but the general social, political and economic transformation of the country as well.

Researchers can view all of the typography, graphics and drawings as they were originally presented, which provides context and perspective to religion in American and world history.

Biblical Research Perspectives, 1516-1922 profiles how biblical studies grew with critical tools and the discovery of ancient manuscript materials. With this specialized resource, students and researchers can gain a better understanding of biblical interpretation and thought over time.
