Keyword and Subject Searching

Search Tips and Strategies
First, generate a set of terms related to your topic.

Christian/ity           Apocrypha      gospel/s                 Matthew    John
Early Christianity                          narrative/s             Luke        Mary
Judaism/Judaica                           parable/s               Mark        James
New Testament                            infancy narrative     Thomas     Q
                                                                                   Judas        Jesus

infancy AND (narrative OR gospel*)=Using the AND operater narrows your search to only results that mention both keywords.  Use the OR operator to search for variants or synonyms of the same keyword.  The asterisk (*) is a wildcard symbol that is used to catch variant endings of a word (individuality, individualism, as well as individual).

“infancy narrative” AND Matthew=Use quotation marks to search for a specific phrase.
