This website contains the complete contents of the 12-volume Jewish Encyclopedia, which was originally published between 1901-1906. The Jewish Encyclopedia, which recently became part of the public domain, contains over 15,000 articles and illustrations. This online version contains the unedited contents of the original encyclopedia. Since the original work was completed almost 100 years ago, it does not cover a significant portion of modern Jewish History (e.g., the creation of Israel, the Holocaust, etc.).

The purpose of the web site is to offer information about religious traditions that appeared at first in the Middle East or West Asia as well as ones from South and East Asia. (Traditions from Africa will take a place among them in future.) There are authorized copies of resources from two contributing scholars, too: 1) Research on the German historian of religion and theologian Rudolf Otto (1869-1937) by Gregory D. Alles. 2) The Fondarosa, a mirror of the original site in Ottawa that contains essays written by Marc Fonda.

It is impalpable, and time doesn't exist there.
