Some volume of books teaching religion (5)


I believe the answer is:


'some volume' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'books teaching religion' is the wordplay.
'books' becomes 'lit' (abbreviation for literature).
'teaching religion' becomes 'RE' (Religious Education).

'of' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for litre that I've seen before include "French volume" , "Unit of capacity in metric system" , "Amount of liquid" , "less than two pints" , "Mcc?" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
