Treasures of The Angus

The Angus Library and Archive holds more than 70,000 items in total, the Treasures of The Angus Library and Archive displayed here represent only the tip of the iceberg!

The Angus Library and Archive is comprised of an unparalleled collection of manuscripts, printed works, photographs, and other artefacts, particularly related to Baptist and Nonconformist history and heritage from the 15th century to the present day.

The Angus Library and Archive unites the original collection of historical material gathered by Rev. Dr. Joseph Angus, Principal of Regent’s Park College from 1849 to 1893, with the libraries and archives of the Baptist Union of Great Britain, Baptist Historical Society, Baptist Missionary Society and The Baptist Times.

Alongside items concerning Baptist and Nonconformist history there is a wealth of material from non-Baptist sources relating to issues and controversies in which Baptists were involved – from the Abolition of slavery, the Missions movement, and Religious Freedom to botany, trade, and cartography.
