Baptist history is a field full of opportunities for new investigations. (1) To be sure, over the years, a number of areas have attracted our attention. The most obvious is institutional history, that is, denominational, associational, and local church matters. The American Baptist Historical Society together with American Baptist Archives Center and the American Baptist-Samuel Colgate Historical Library have provided resources for people looking at Baptists in the North and West, while the Southern Baptist Historical Library and Archives and the Baptist History and Heritage Society have done likewise in the South as well as in other parts of the country. In Europe are the rich holdings of the Angus Library at Regents Park College and the affiliated Centre for Baptist History and Heritage in Oxford, England, and the library and Oncken Archive at the German Baptist theological seminary in Elstal bei Berlin.
