Teopedia (greek θεος - god; παιδεία — study) - the theosophical encyclopedia, build from works of different thinkers, who follow the theosophical ideology, which is widely spread by The Theosophical Society and other theosophical organizations.
The goal of Teopedia is to provide the most comprehensive idea about any conception or a phenomenon. Objectivity could be obtained by comparison of opinions of various authorities, and since the authorities are different for everyone, there are the separate sections for every each of them. People trusting some authorities can limit their studies by the chosen sections, but for interested persons there is a possibility to familiarize with opinion of other thinkers.
Unlike Wikipedia, Teopedia can and will include articles not only scientifically-atheistic, but also scientifically-religious, scientifically-philosophical, scientifically-mystical and so forth as all these directions of human thinking have their facts, their observers and their scientists.
In Teopedia any religious faiths, philosophical doctrines and scientific hypotheses can be reflected. Being the theosophical encyclopedia, Teopedia will try to display all variety of human thought.
To get more understanding of what Theosophy is, you can look through other theosophical sites and forums or read theosophical literature, which you can download as the electronic books or buy via Internet shops.
Currently the English section of the project needs English speaking maintainers!
