Cadbury Research Library Special Collections holds an extensive number of important archive collections related to theology and religion. The Mingana Collection consists mainly of Arabic and Syriac Middle Eastern manuscripts with some Persian, Turkish, Armenian, Greek manuscripts and Hebrew/Jewish works. It has particular strengths in illustrated manuscripts and early Islamic and Syriac materials, including fragments of one of the oldest Qu'rans in existence. The Church Missionary Society archive is the largest collection in our care and records date from 1799 to 2009. Other prominent collections available for research include the Harold Turner Collection, Leslie Weatherhead and the YMCA Archive. Please contact the Cadbury Research Library if you would like further information on theses and other theology and religious books and archives we hold.
