The only time you have to use the encyclopedia in Pilgrim is on one puzzle. And if you already know about the 10 Commandments and the 10 Plagues of Egypt, etc. you don't even need to use it there.
For quite a while Pilgrim was my favorite edutainment game with Versailles 1685 my second favorite. Treasure Hunter was also very good (though I've only played the French version and my French is not fluent so I probably missed things). And I'm looking forward to Chemicus, which should be released soon (the website says September 2002).
