Using the Atla Religion Database

Search by Scripture

A distinguishing feature of the Atla Database is its Scriptures search. A Biblical scripture can be searched either by a:

  1. Hierarchical "Drill-Down" method that allows you to expand or select a chapter or verse in canonical order.
  2. Scripture Citation method that follows the Revised Standard Version (RSV) of Biblical citation.
