The Open Court


The Open Court, published between 1887 and 1936, was "devoted to the science of religion, the religion of science, and the extension of the religious parliament idea." Subjects extensively covered by articles in The Open Court include the history of philosophy, Asian religions and culture, education, and contemporary ideas of religion and philosophy. The journal also published reviews of contemporary works of theology, philosophy, science, and mathematics.

As the official repository for the Open Court Publishing Company, the Special Collections Research Center of Morris Library is making digitized articles from The Open Court available via OpenSIUC.
