When you quote from the Bible, Quran, Torah or any sacred text, the required elements for your reference are:

Name of religious text, Book. Sura or Chapter: Verse

Here is an example:

  • The Holy Bible. New international Version 1979. London: Hodder & Stoughton


Here is an example of an in-text citation for religious/sacred texts:
  • ‘In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth’ (The Holy Bible, Genesis.1:1)
Note: Convention dictates that you do not use page numbers with religious/sacred texts.

For further details please refer to the Harvard Referencing Guide or get in touch.

If you are using a different referencing style to Harvard please contact your tutor for support.
