Some of the world's great religious and philosophical texts.

The world's largest religions and philosophies have each been founded by comparably extensive texts, some of which have come about through divine revelation, others through personal inspiration, and others without any supernatural or preternatural involvement.

By whichever way these texts were formed, each have held profound influence on the development of world civilisation and thought. This page provides a list of the world's longest religious and philosophical texts by word count of both ancient, modern and contemporary origin. The books in this list must be directly associated with a particular religion or philosophy and therefore, generally books on religion/philosophy or books about a religion or a philosophy are not included. Only books that are officially considered as part of the religion or philosophy's canon are included.
