Articles from about 1800 journals and festschriten in Religion and Biblical Studies back to 1949. They also produce very good Old Testament Abstracts and New Testament Abstracts. If your institution has subscribed, this will probably get you there.

THEOLDI and Bibliographic Databases (Innsbruck library) - (Insbruck library)
