The Humanist Library and Archives has commenced the process of digitising our collections in order to share them beyond the confines of our building. Our first digital collection is called Architecture and Place and explores the history of the buildings that have or do shelter our Society, the Conway Hall Ethical Society, and the spaces which we have called home.

From the Archives allows us in the Humanist Library and Archives to share some of our wonderful items and our learning with you!

It also includes entries from the former A2R (Alternatives to Religion) blog, a collaborative project between Conway Hall and Bishopsgate Institute which sparked exploration of some of the ways people have tried to make sense of the world and live together ethically without the need for faith in a God or gods.
