Jewish Encyclopedia Wikipedia Entry
As implied this page is a beginning point for information on the world's top religions. I have gone a bit beyond that adding some others intermixed here. As prevalent on this site so many things are interwoven that you will find more links on other pages that relate to these and each other, what I like to tern the “Spiritual Spiderweb”. This is a very basic reference page to begin an exploration. This will evolve over time to include more links and information. For more go to the Other Traditions Page

It held a strict view that refused readmission to communion of Lapsi
those baptized Christians who had denied their faith or performed the formalities of
a ritual sacrifice to the pagan gods, under the pressures of persecution
"persons who risk their lives as nurses"
were the members of a brotherhood who in early Christianity
voluntarily undertook the care of the sick and
the burial of the dead knowing they could die.
