The RCB Library is the principal repository for Church of Ireland archives. Commencing in January 2012, “Archive of the Month” aims to showcase specific collections in the library’s custody to a worldwide audience.
For January, we feature the papers of the General Convention and its related committees which re–organised the Church following Disestablishment – the separation of the Church from state control. These document the Church’s evolutionary story at a most challenging time in its history, and reveal the thinking and strategy behind the general and diocesan synodical structures we have inherited today. The collection includes minute books, resolutions, correspondence, petitions printed and other materials and covers the period 1868–1874.
