Can you help me add to what I know are ancient religious texts?
Bible (OT) - Jewish
Bible (OT & NT) - Christian
Book of Mormon, Pearl of Great Price, Doctrines & Covenants - Mormon/LDS
(but these were written in the 19th Century, I think, so aren't 'ancient.')
Dead Sea Scrolls - Jewish (are they in the OT used by the Jews?)
The Ramayana of Valmiki (Is this the correct title?) - Hindu
I know think there are a lot more sacred writings for Hinduism, but I don't know their names. And, are they all bound together, like a collection, similar to the collection of books in the one Bible?
What other ancient religious texts/sacred scripture is there?
This will save you a lot of time:
It doesn't have all of them, but it has a basic selection for just about every religion, providing it has at least one English translation. For example, a lot of the Norse Sagas aren't there, but the basic books - the Prose and Poetic Eddas, and some of the more common Sagas that have been translated.

Here's a link to ancient Hindu text that you can read online. Most of the translations are older translations. However, they (the one's I have read so far) are thorough and pretty concise.
