The Angus Library And Archive

Here is a nice little gem I found online today:

From the site:

The Angus Library and Archive is the leading collection of Baptist history and heritage worldwide. It contains more than 70,000 items relating to the life and history of Baptists in Britain and the wider scene…

The Angus Library and Archive has an extensive manuscript collection including collections from key Baptist people such as William Carey, C.H. Spurgeon, Joshua and Hannah Marshman and Willam Ward, E.A. Payne, and J. H Rushbrook. It also holds manuscripts for leading Baptist families such as Angus, Steele, Whitaker, and Reeves.

There is a collection of minutes and papers from a variety of Baptist organisations or organisations with which Baptists have been involved such as the European Baptist Federation, Baptist World Alliance, Baptist Historical Society, Deaconess Movement and the World Council of Churches. Special collections, including those of the Baptist Missionary Society, offer material relating to Baptist witness in Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, West Africa, India, China and South East Asia. Early connections between Baptists in Britain and the United States of America are well covered.

What a joy to see pictures of things like:

The Child’s Delight: or Instructions for Children and Youth by Benjamin Keach (c. 1704)
1644 Baptist Confession Of Faith

You can see their entire collection here.

The “Important Places in Baptist History” section pinpoints places across Great Britain that were pivotal in the development of Baptist history. We can now make pilgrimages to sacred baptist sites across Great Britian!
