    Where can I find artifacts and photos of Baptist life?? Such as photos of baptisms, baptistries, Hymn and Record boards, wooden offering plates, Sunday School pins, etc.

    KPBAP,

    I have a photographic reproduction of a woodcut from Daniel Featley's "The Dipper's Dipt" published in England in the 1600s. It has an elaborate picture of a demon hovering over pictures of "the severall sorts of Anabaptists."

    I would be glad to get you a copy for you for what it costs me to copy and send it (about $10.00).

    If interested e-mail me at [email protected].

    You can find anything and everything you want, with very reasonable pricing, on eBay.

    I sure was hoping for more than a reply and a half! I guess we discard our heritage like trash. Baptists care little about aesthetics and if it isn't new then it is worthless....sad!

    I don't think we discard our heritage . . . but I'd say that many of us don't regard our heritage to be things, you know?

    What exactly are you looking for? A used baptistry? Since Baptists (normally, although Lord knows we have some ab-normal ones on the BB) are NOT liturgical, so chances of finding a Bible, candle, communion tray, vestment, etc

    Have seen some old pews and some stained-glass that has caught my attention. Give some ideas here and you might be surprised. I have a number of books very old, some autographed.
