Canadian Society of Church History

Founded in 1960, the Canadian Society of Church History is a non-denominational association dedicated to promoting and encouraging research in the history of Christianity, particularly the history of Christianity in Canada. Over the years, the Society’s annual meetings have provided a forum for Canada’s leading historians of Christianity. In addition, the Society has encouraged younger historians, especially graduate students, to present papers that contribute to the historical understanding of Christianity.

Fondée en 1960, la Société canadienne d’histoire de l’église est une association non-confessionelle pour la promotion de la recherche en histoire du christianisme, et en particulier du christianisme au Canada. Au fil des ans, les congrès annuels rassemblent les principaux historiens du christianisme et encouragent les jeune historiens, particulièrement les étudiants des 2e et 3e cycles, à y prendre part et à y prendre part et à diffuser leurs recherches.
