Interesting variety of texts from different traditions, not just religious texts. For example, the complete text of Mooney's Myths of the Cherokee (1900) is included.

Time spent reviewing site: visited occasioinally and read some texts over a number of years

This site has an amazingly extensive collection of religious/sacred texts. Most appear in translations completed during the late nineteenth or early twentieth century. The site also contains scholarly and popular works from this period on specific religions, etc. Considering the age of the translations and the secondary literature, users need to exercise caution when consulting these documents. Nevertheless, the value of having these texts readily available online is likely to outweigh this concern.
