Hi there,

I was unable to find a suitable word for the people involved in these areas:

1) a person who studies sources, i.e., old manuscripts etc. -- ?
2) a person who studies Judaism or Christianity or Islam -- Scholar on Judaism ???
3) a person who studies the culture, language and people of a particular nation -- ???

Please, help with the "words" that I need to know in English.

#1 could be an "archivist", it depends what you mean exactly by "studies sources. #2 is a "theologian". #3 could be a "sociologist".

You could well be right, bhai. However, #1 might be a historian and #3 an anthropologist. We'd need a far more precise job description before we could be a little more confident.
