This guide is designed to help you identify an initiation ritual in another religion to compare with the Zoroastrian Naojote. The section on REFERENCE SOURCES provides encyclopedias with information on other religions.
Once you have decided on the ritual, you may use the FINDING BOOKS and FINDING ARTICLES sections to locate scholarly material to use in your comparison.
Remember to acknowledge your use of sources. The section on CITATION STYLES and WRITING HELP provides links to acceptable citation styles. If you need assistance writing the paper many useful links are available in the writing section.
