These e-journal collections provide access to many journals in the field of Religion, but they are more limited in scope and coverage compared to subject databases. In most cases, it's better to search subject databases to identify articles.
JSTOR is a high-quality, interdisciplinary journal archive. It includes archives of over one thousand leading academic journals across the humanities, social sciences, and sciences. Note that typically there's an "embargo" on recent content.
Project Muse provides full-text access to journals in the humanities and social sciences. Coverage of journals typically begins in the late 1990s or later.

What's a secondary source?
In secondary sources, authors analyze and interpret primary source materials.
Secondary sources can be scholarly or popular. Scholarly sources (sometimes called "academic" or "peer-reviewed" sources) are written by and for experts and typically include bibliographies and citations. Popular sources are written for a general, non-expert audience and can be authored by anyone.
