Vilnius. The English language site of New Religions Research and information centre went online on June 16, 2004, about a year after the Lithuanian language site was first published.
The Lithuanian language site currently contains about 130 pages, including articles on new religions, religious freedom and a lot of legal information.
NRTIC hopes to expand the English language site and to make it an important resource on religion, new religious movements and religious freedom for the English-speaking world.
