The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC) is an association of people and entities dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of information on the history of the Episcopal Church and its antecedents.
Founded in 1910 in Philadelphia as the Church Historical Society by a small group of clergy and laity who were determined to provide an organization and structure to focus on keeping the history of the church and share it with others. HSEC members includes scholars, researchers, teachers and students, archivists, historians, professionals and enthusiasts of history. Anyone who has an interest in the objectives of the Society is invited to become a member.
The Society fulfills its objectives a number of ways, but especially through publications of scholarly and general interest, grants to scholars for research and programs and in providing networking opportunities. Anyone with an interest in the history of the Episcopal Church, and its antecedents, are invited to join the Society today.
Thank You Members!
Our members are crucial to the Society's objectives by supporting grants for scholars and research, the expense of managing administrative overhead, publishing and conferences. The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church expresses thanksgiving for those members whose financial contributions go beyond the regular level of support.
