Home >> encyclopaedias


The word encyclopaedia descends from a phrase that involved coming to grips with the contents of a large set of books. The Greek phrase is enkuklios paideia, made up of "enkuklios" - cyclical, periodic, ordinary and "paideia" - education, and meaning general education, literally the arts and sciences that a person should study to be liberally educated.

We have brought together the best online encyclopaedias in the world for you to look up.
