Library Access: The Holden Collection
Beautiful theological books from between 1546 and 1922 are available for clergy to borrow from the Holden Collection in the Brotherton library at the University of Leeds. The collection is still growing and includes hundreds of Old and New Testaments, biographies and devotional literature. Other topics include pastoral theology, Church history, public worship, liturgy and sacraments, non-Christian religions and aspects of Yorkshire's religious history. The collection, originally formed by George Holden, is the property of the Anglican Diocese of Leeds. The diocese, together with the regional Methodist church and the RC Diocese of Leeds provides grants to fund new purchases and the library is available to all clergy within the diocese.
