ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to classify theological terms using facets and form foundation to build a theological thesaurus. The terms was chosen in a English theological dictionary and the number of them are 1,031, but eventually, 984 terms were classified. The facets which classify the terms are 7 fundamentals and 14 sub-facets. Analysing the result of classification, abstract terms are much more than physical terms. They are 70% of the whole. Decimal classification to classify documents comes to dead end, therefore I think the research to classify terms of a specific subject as theology must be active. Furthermore, It is necessary to have knowledge about a specific subject to organize information in a specific subject.
