  • Encyclopedia of Arab Languages and Linguistics (EALL Online)
    EALL Online comprehensively covers all aspects of Arabic languages and linguistics. It is interdisciplinary in scope and represents different schools and approaches to be as objective and versatile as possible
  • Encyclopedia of Women and Islamic Cultures (EWIC)
    WIC is an interdisciplinary, transhistorical, and global project. It brings together upwards of 1,000 scholars to write critical essays on women, Muslim and non-Muslim, and Islamic cultures in every region where there have been significant Muslim populations.
  • Encyclopaedia of Islam
    The Encyclopaedia of Islam (Second Edition) Online sets out the present state of knowledge of the Islamic World. It is a unique reference tool for understanding the world of Islam, and a source not only for the religion, but also for the believers and the countries in which they live.
  • Encyclopaedia of the Qur'an
    Drawing upon a rich scholarly heritage, Brill's Encyclopaedia of the Qur'an (EQ) combines alphabetically-arranged articles about the contents of the Qur'an. It is an encyclopaedic dictionary of Qur'anic terms, concepts, personalities, place names, cultural history and exegesis extended with essays on the most important themes and subjects within Qur'anic studies. With nearly 1000 entries in 5 volumes, the EQ is the first comprehensive, multi-volume reference work on the Qur'an to appear in a Western language.
