It's no secret that I'm a big history buff. Since the beginning of recorded time, humans have been naturally curious about their surroundings, where they came from and what the meaning of life is. I'm no exception.
There have been several texts dating back thousands of years that have had a significant cultural impact on society and human nature as a whole. No matter how old these texts get, it's important to remember what they have taught us and the generations before us.
Created by a software engineer named John Bruno Hare in 1999, the Internet Sacred Text Archive gives you access to the world's largest library of online texts on religion, mythology, folklore and more. These include works like the Bible, the Qur'an and works from great philosophers like Plato and Sophocles.
These works are all a part of public domain and are divided into an amazing 77 different categories. You can search via category, or type in what you are looking for in the search bar. There are thousands of texts available, so I have no doubt that you can find something interesting to read.
