Activities of the Historical Society include publishing, conferences, resources, grants, and advocacy for studying Episcopal history.
The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church exists to fulfill three objectives:
First, to promote preservation of the heritage of the Episcopal Church and its antecedents.
Second, to publish a peer-reviewed journal to aid promotion as well as be a vehicle for publication of similar work from throughout the Anglican Communion.
Third, to cooperate with others who examine the history of the Episcopal Church and churches of the Anglican Communion to encourage research, writing and education.
Members of the Historical Society of the Episcopal Church play an important and crucial role in fulfilling its objectives. Member dues provide support for grants to research and programs. They also support needed administrative overhead to facilitate the flow of information. And of course there is also provision for publishing and conferences. The Board of Directors is especially thankful for those able and willing to provide contribution beyond those with a regular or retiree membership.
