5. Options in Religion (2) (Option C: Class in 291, and add to base number 291 the numbers following the base number for that religion in 292-299, e.g., Hinduism 291, Mahabharata 291.923 (Option D: Class in 298, which is permanently unassigned (Option E: Place first by use of a letter or other symbol, e.g., Hinduism 2H0 (preceding 220 ), or 29H (preceding 291 or 292 ); add to the base number thus derived, e.g., to 2H or to 29H, the numbers following the base number for the religion in 292-299, e.g., Shivaism 2H5.13 or 29H.513)

7. Proposal for New General Option Vacate 220-290 Arrange religions in chronological/regional order

8. UDC Class 2 Revision (1) 21 Prehistoric and primitive religions 22 Religions of the Far East 23 Religions of the Indian Subcontinent 24 Buddhism 25 Religions of antiquity. Minor cults and religions

9. UDC Class 2 Revision (2) 26 Judaism 27 Christianity 28 Islam 29 Modern spiritual movements

10. Issues in Use of Options Inability to use standard numbers Inability for others to understand optional numbers Implementation rules needed for Options A and D, and for displaced notation in Option B

11. Discussion Are attendees using options in religion? Should we replace Option A with the modified version? Should we consider a new optional development that redistributes the 220-290 notation in a chronological/regional approach? Are there other approaches (e.g., browsers, deeper expansions)?
