Historical Library Subject Index

An author index is also available.

The Historical Library contains writings written before 1970, only. For material written during or after 1970, please refer to the Modern Documents section of the Secular Web Library.

This section is provided for those doing research into the history of nontheism. It is not intended to be–and should not be used as–a source of modern, up-to-date information regarding atheistic issues. Those looking for modern critiques of theism should go to the Modern Documents section of the Secular Web Library.

IMPORTANT: In the past, we have been inundated with email addressed to, and feedback regarding, the articles and authors included here. All of these authors are dead–and in many cases have been so for several decades. We will not reply to email addressed to dead authors, and therefore any email addressed to these authors will be ignored. Similarly, we do not reply to feedback regarding faulty scholarship on the part of dead authors, nor do we correct spelling errors and/or typographical errors (most of which result from the scanning and OCR process) in their articles.

Note: We give great thanks to the Bank of Wisdom, which provided most of the files included in this section.
