This exhibit traces the history of ecumenical student Christian movements, featuring archival documentation from the Library’s extensive holdings in this area. Over the past 150 years, these movements have provided community for Christian students and opportunities to engage with social issues of the time.

The Divinity Library has recently acquired an important manuscript collection, the papers of John Sung.  Sung was a renowned evangelist and leader of the revival movement in China in the 1920s and 1930s. The numerous handwritten diaries and letters in this collection will be a valued source of information about Sung’s thought and work.
