"Independent from any religious group, Church, denomination or association, CESNUR, the Center for Studies on New Religions, is an international network of associations of scholars working in the field of new religious movements." Their Website features an extensive and frequently updated library of scholarly texts on a seemingly exhaustive list of new religious movements of any size and scale. The texts and documents section offers hypertext bibliographies of articles, books, and Web resources on the general phenomenon of new religious movements; individual case studies of hundreds of organizations; and citations concerning religious liberty, anti-cult movements, and brainwashing. A similar bibliography of book reviews is also available here as is information on past and upcoming conferences associated with CESNUR. As the organization is international, some materials are presented in Italian, French, or Spanish.
