The encyclopedia provides biographical articles, articles on countries, places, terms and events as well as articles on groups and institutions. Short definitions and cross-references enable quick and easy searching. Detailed series articles deal with keywords such as the  "Last Supper" or "Christianity" from various perspectives.
