Welcome to the Archives! The Academy of the New Church Archives at Bryn Athyn College house approximately 1,500 linear feet of records and manuscripts.
Located on the lower floor of the Swedenborg Library, the archives contains historical records of New Church and Swedenborgian movements in the United States as well as the records of Bryn Athyn College, the Academy of the New Church, and the General Church of the New Jerusalem.

The Academy of the New Church Archives serve as the repository of the record groups for Bryn Athyn College, the Academy of the New Church Secondary Schools, and the New Church (the General Church of the New Jerusalem).
The Archives also house collections on the history of the New Church (including its previous forms), the community of Bryn Athyn, and prominent members of the New Church and the Bryn Athyn Community.
While these record groups are not yet entirely searchable online, more information is added each week.
During regular hours of operation there is an Archives staff member on duty to assist you in locating material for research. In addition, it may be possible to make an appointment to visit the archives outside these hours. Contact the Archivist to make arrangements.
