CCLI – Christian Copyright Licensing International är en licensorganisation som etablerades 1988, och våra licenser har funnits tillgängliga i Sverige sedan 1998. CCLI:s önskan är att göra det enkelt för församlingar och kristna organisationer som vill kunna mångfaldiga sångtexter för sina gudstjänster och samlingar, och samtidigt garantera att kristna sångskrivare och förlag får ersättning när deras sånger används.
Christian Copyright Licensing International (CCLI) is a licence organisation which was originally established in 1988. Our licences have been available in Sweden since 1998. CCLI’s purpose is to make it easy for churches and Christian organisations who wish to duplicate song lyrics for their church services and gatherings, and also to make sure the Christian song writers and publishers are getting royalties when their songs have been reproduced.
The Center for the Study of Christianity was established in 1999, thanks to the generosity of Hubert and Aldegonde Brenninkmeijer-Werhahn, and dedicated in March 2000, just ahead of John Paul II’s historic visit to Israel. Since its founding the Center has been connected with the Department of Comparative Religion, where Christian studies are taught. The Hebrew University is a secular institution, and the Center has no religious dimension or theological mission, overt or hidden. It is the only institution of its kind in Israel.
"A comprehensive demographic study of more than 200 countries finds that there are 2.18 billion Christians of all ages around the world, representing nearly a third of the estimated 2010 global population of 6.9 billion. Christians are also geographically widespread – so far-flung, in fact, that no single continent or region can indisputably claim to be the center of global Christianity."
As the initial phase of this mission, the Open Access Digital Theological Library (OADTL) has gleaned high quality content from hundreds of publisher sites, institutional repositories, museums, scholarly societies and public domain collections. The OADTL currently contains about 100,000 OA ebooks and several hundred thousand articles in religious studies. Highlights from the collections contain published books from Brill, de Gruyter, the Society of Biblical Literature and the University of Chicago among others. The collections also contain thousands of Ph.D. and D.Min. dissertations. The collections are growing quickly. The OADTL offers both simple and advanced searching for content. All content is fully cataloged by professional librarians.
