Sacred Literature

Go To

Books that are considered sacred by at least one religion. For sacred books as a trope in fiction, see Sacred Scripture. The latter will also tell you more about the genre.

Note that not every text concerned with religion is also considered sacred. For instance, within Christianity, The Bible is considered holy, but theological or devotional literature, the Lives of Saints, and Christian fiction are not.

Also, the status of a text as sacred may be ambiguous even within a single religion, as one branch of a religion may regard a specific text sacred while another doesn't. For the purpose of this index, it is enough if one branch regards it as sacred.
