Internet History Sourcebooks Project
Internet History Sourcebooks Project Paul Halsall, Editor Last Modified: Dec 11 | linked pages may have been updated more recently The Internet History Sourcebooks Project is a collection of public domain and copy-permitted historical texts presented cleanly (without advertising or excessive layout) for educational use. 1. This project is both very large and fairly old in Internet terms. At the time it was instigated (1996), it was not clear that web sites [and the documents made available there] would often turn out to be transient. 2. 3. Feedback and Help While I encourage notes, comments and feedback in general, I am unable to reply to all of them. For guidance on homework, research, how people lived/ate/dressed in the past, see the various Help! I am unable to help locate details about your family, or give translations of your name or nickname into Chinese (a very common request)! I am always happy to hear from people who wish to submit copy permitted texts to the various sites below.

13 Good Resources for Social Studies Teachers I recently met an old colleague of mine for breakfast. Steve and I team taught a course together for a couple of years before he retired a few years ago. During our conversation he said to me, "Richard, what I knew you were good at was finding things our students liked." Coming from Steve, whose opinions I hold in high regards, took that as a compliment and as a reminder that I haven't published a good list for fellow social studies teachers in quite a while.

University of Glasgow Following the launch of the Shestov Studies Society, the first issue of the Shestov Journal came out in 1997, as a bi-lingual (English/ French) publication, that combined the informative role of a newsletter and the wider scope of a magazine devoted to the publication of new critical work as well as to the occasional re-printing of significant exegeses, or even primary texts which are long out of print. So far, five issues of the Shestov journal have been published : Issue nr. 4-5 is devoted to Shestov's previously unpublished correspondence with Martin Buber. Issue nr. 6 includes the reprint of the article 'Menacing Barbarians of Today', which initially came out in 1934 in the theosophical journal The Aryan Path, and which has never been reprinted in a volume.

Wesley Center-Noncanonical Literature Noncanonical Literature Documents to Aid Students and Scholars in Biblical Interpretation including Introductions and Summaries of Many Noncanonical Works Non-Canonical Literature Disclaimer The Bible is an invaluable collection of sacred ancient texts, written and assembled over several hundreds of years by numerous authors. These texts were written to particular people living at a definite time and place who shared common experiences and knowledge. By studying similar literature that precedes and follows the biblical writings chronologically, students of the Bible are better prepared to discover the intended meaning. Apocryphal and pseudepigraphal literature was apparently intended either to supplement or supplant existing canonical literature.
