Section III: Central Records

Part 13: CMS Collection of Lives of Missionaries held at the Church Missionary Society Library

Parts 13 and 14 focus on the lives of CMS missionaries, bringing together biographical works stored at the Max Warren Library at the Church Mission Society Library, London. Part 13 covers missionaries A-L whilst Part 14 looks at section L-Y. The majority of the missionary lives documented are men but there are also several women, including some who worked for the Church of England Zenana Society.

The books, are for the majority, written for adults, some of them by wives or husbands of missionaries, some by professional authors and some are small books written by the CMS themselves. There are also a few books written for the younger audience.

The contents of the books are mixed, some being merely a story of the life and work of the missionary, but most with interesting extracts from the missionary's letters and journals. A considerable amount of the books also contain photographs and maps.

The biographies give us a fascinating insight into the work of the missionaries and the lives of the people they worked among. There is much on itineration in and around the missions as well as on the evangelical side of the work. There is also much on local customs, traditions, homes, dress, religious practices.

Missionaries who worked in the following countries are included in this part - China, India, West Africa, Persia, North West America, New Zealand, Egypt and the Sudan, Ceylon, Uganda, Nigeria, Abyssinia, Palestine, East Africa, making for a comprehensive picture of CMS work around the globe.
