Transactions of the Baptist Historical Society available for free download

By admin | July 26, 2011

Many years ago, when I was a very poor Ph.D. student, I spent a term working at the Angus Library, Regent’s Park College, Oxford. With very limited resources, I purchased several out-of-print journals and books, but I had to decline what would have been a true prize, a complete set of the Transactions of the Baptist Historical Society. This was the early name for what would become The Baptist Quarterly, and was published in seven volumes from 1908-1921. It is full of incredibly valuable material, including many reprinted primary sources from the Seventeenth century.

All of this material is now in the public domain and has been made available for free here. Additionally, the entire set may be downloaded in .pdf format. This is a great bounty. And beyond this wonderful resource, the early issues of The Baptist Quarterly are also being scanned and placed on the same website.

Tolle lege.
