Cyclopaedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature
The Cyclopædia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Literature is a reference work of ten volumes and two supplements published in the 19th century, co-authored by John McClintock, academic and minister, and Dr. James Strong, professor of exegetical theology. The works were published by Harper and Brothers.
As an encyclopædia, the authors set out to create a scholarly work, but accessible to the non-expert, designed to be
|“||a Manual of Sacred Literature for the use of Ministers, Students, General Readers, and Sunday School Libraries, so complete in itself that no other work will be necessary for ordinary purposes of reference in these branches of knowledge.||”|
Topics covered in the volumes include descriptions of proper names, locations, events, theological concepts, histories of the Christian Churches, and biographical sketches of notable religious figures.
