    I'm not sure if anyone put this on here yet, but it has quite a bit of links and .pdf files of scans of original documents (which came in handy for a recent research paper that involved the Strict Baptists)

    also... the site which we retrieved some of the information from and from which we purchased the very nice prints from is:

    They also do baptist history tours and what-not. Very cool.

    Having looked over this site, I cannot help but point out its errant portrayal of "The Arminians" -- at least the Remonstrants who first followed Jacobus Arminius -- as "similar to Semi-Pelagianism." That may sell with Calvinists who wish to dismiss any challenge to their system, but it is quite theologically inaccurate, and to perpetuate such myths is, to be blunt -- sinful.

    Additionally, when the origins of Baptists are discussed, ONLY those Baptists of Reformed conviction are even mentioned. The first Baptists, however, who founded the Baptist Church at Spitalsfield in 1612 under the leadership of Thomas Helwys, were clearly General Baptists -- Arminian in doctrine.

    As a Historian, while much of this material is valuable, it is often what is left out or misrepresented that tells us the most -- not about Church History, but about the biases of those who present it.

    Only by those w/o ears to hear. BTW, a paraphrased quote disagreement is hardly "sound discreditation".

    This was meant to be a page of resources, not another debate forum. As I said in the OP, "I also cannot vouch for the veracity of the information contained on all the sites."

    The veracity of "The Trail of Blood" has been addressed previously in the main part of the forum, and that is the proper place for discussion of that work, as well as other histories and sources.

    Thank you.

    I have a huge Christian library in my home and in them I have "The Christian's Guide to Church History" by James L. Melton, a very short and brief; but, very informative book on church history along with Dr. Peter Ruckman's 2 volume set on Church History and am looking to purchase Foxe's book of Martyrs soon also, as I love Church History. I also have the books of Philo and Josephus and other books on Jewish history as well. So; maybe if there are any questions I can look them up and let one know what I have in my library and whom says what?

    Yes, that's the same one. for some reason with the Morgan Edwards bit on the end the link doesn't work.

    [FONT=Times New Roman. times.serif]* * Baptist History Homepage * * [/FONT] [FONT=Times New Roman. times.serif] A Source for Original Baptist Documents
    [/FONT]



    "There are now nearly a thousand documents on the site. They are an eclectic assortment; their quality is uneven — some are well-written articles while others are less so. Some are very important, some not so important. I have left the documents "as they are" except where I use [ ] to show a change or at the end of the article I indicate a change of the title or that I've added a title to a document that had no title. The grammar and spelling of the original are retained. I give the page numbers for the source so that you may check it out if necessary [I began doing this in 2005 and all items are not paginated yet]. These Baptist Documents are interesting to me and I hope many will be to you too. As you will notice, I have also included some older Baptist history books that aren't generally located on other Internet sites."
