Biblical Studies Search Engine and Forum

There is a new and potentially exciting Biblical Studies resource at http://www.deinde.org/ the Deinde home page is a sort of Biblical Studies blog maintained by a group of Biblical Studies postgraduates. There is also a discussion forum, currently sadly little used.

For now though the real treasure is a subject specific editorially selected Biblical Studies search engine. Paul Nikkel (the "top banana") says (in an email) that although he only "started the search project in February" they currently "have about 13 000 pages indexed now...and growing."

So those of us who have scholarly Bible related sites should:
  • link to the resource

  • check we are listed and if not use the submission email

  • point our students to it - that way they will get more good stuff, and perhaps less rubbish!


  • Paul writes also that:
    I think a form of this is essential to making use of the myriad of published biblical works on the net. Link pages are fine but they are time consuming and difficult to sort through for a specific topic. Also, of course this has an advantage to something like Google search as it is 'peer-reviewed', the pages have to meet at least some requirements to be included in the search, further Google does not index everything on the web.
