Lent is the period preceding Easter, devoted to fasting, abstinence, and penitence in commemoration of Jesus' fasting in the wilderness. This Lent Library Guide is a collection of librarian-selected resources on the topic in both online and physical formats. Browse the links to reference items, books, scholarly articles, music, movies, and external websites as well. We hope you will find it useful in jump-starting your research, worship planning, and spiritual practices.
