Sacred-texts DVD-ROM 9.0
Contents by Title Contents by Subject New in 9.0
THE INTERNET SACRED TEXT ARCHIVE DVD-ROM 9.0 has electronic texts of over 1700 of the most important books ever written, most of which were transcribed especially for sacred-texts. Years of research and scholarship went into this product: all the core texts of religion, mythology, folklore and the esoteric on one disk.
For centuries these texts were stashed in dusty libraries. Now you can finally unlock the secrets of the ages on your home computer. Scholars have only dreamed of this kind of access, now it is just a mouse click away!
You get the full text of each book, many with footnotes and illustrations. To buy all of these books you would have to spend a small fortune, even if you could find them: many are out of print and hard to obtain at any price. We spent over a quarter million dollars putting this disk together. You pay only $99.95--just pennies a book. Worldwide shipping is free when you buy direct!
Everything on the disk can be viewed in a standard web browser on your PC or Macintosh. Proceeds from sales of Sacred-texts on disk go to support free worldwide access to the Internet Sacred Text Archive on the web (sacred-texts.com) and development of new etexts.
For the 9.0 version, we have added hundreds of plain text, single file versions of the books on the disk so that you can download them from the disk and use them in your ebook reader, convert them into other formats, use them with your screen reading software, etc. Look for links on the index pages labeled 'Text [Zipped].'
It's like getting hundreds of Kindle books for free in addition to the DVD-ROM!

No other religious studies disk is as comprehensive or well-organized.
