The Dewey Decimal System's categorization for religions of the world, aka the 200 category, is defined as follows:

Dewey, 200: Religion
210 Natural theology
220 Bible
230 Christian theology
240 Christian moral & devotional theology
250 Christian orders & local church
260 Christian social theology
270 Christian church history
280 Christian sects & denominations
290 Other religions

From Clay Shirky's Writings About the Internet in Ontology is Overrated: Categories, Links, and Tags

The Dewey Decimal Classification system was, of course, developed by the American (and presumably Christian) Melvil Dewey in 1876.
