"130" Bass, Dorothy C, and Sandra Hughes Boyd. Women in American Religious History: An Annotated Bibliography. Boston: G. K. Hall, 1986.

Five-hundred and sixty-eight (568) entries comprise this annotated bibliography and guide to sources on "Women in American Religious History." The entries are spread across seven areas: "General Works," (a strong and informative section); "Protestantism" (the largest section); "Roman Catholicism"; "Judaism"; "Afro-American Women"; "Native American Religions"; and "Utopian, Millenarian"; and "Other Alternative Religious Movements."

Entries are indexed by reference numbers and the literature is current through 1985.

The introduction presents clear summaries of each entry and locates James' criteria for inclusion within the larger frameworks of "history of religion" and the "feminization" of American religion as described by Ann Douglass in The Feminization of American Culture "NY: Alfred Knopf, 1977" and Welter "81". This is a solid volume, but without sources on African American women.
