No attempt has thus far been made to provide a critical overview of the broad scope of literature available on religion in Malawi. This article offers a brief critical overview of the field, to serve as an introductory point of reference for interested scholars. Under the main rubrics of African Traditional Religion, Islam and Christianity (each with numerous sub-headings) it presents an annotated bibliography to introduce the reader to all the important publications in this area. The article ends by identifying neglected areas of research.
