The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church (HSEC) is an association of persons and entities dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of information on the history of the Episcopal Church. Founded in 1910 as the Church Historical Society, members include scholars, writers, teachers, ministers (lay and ordained), students - anyone with interest in the objectives of the Society.
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 networking opportunities. Anyone with an interest in the history of the Episcopal Church, and its antecedents, are invited to join the Society today.
Membership is crucial in carrying out the Society's mission. In addition to supporting expenses for managing administrative overhead, memberships support grants for scholars, publications and conferences. The Historical Society of the Episcopal Church pays tribute to our members whose contributions are beyond a regular level of support.
