Church Times archive launched on UKPressOnline
In partnership with UKPressOnline, the Church Times is preparing a complete archive of the paper’s 148-year history.
Most of the 21st-century archive is now available: cataloguing almost every issue from 2000 to the present. UKPressOnline allows you to view, search, and print pages.
In addition, we have prepared the first 26 years, from the paper’s very first issue in 1863 to 1889. This period saw the fierce battles over Ritualism: one of the reasons why the Church Times was established was to defend the High Church against “Broad and Low Bigots”. The paper also warned against the digging of a Channel Tunnel, criticised President Lincoln for going to the theatre (where he was assassinated), and had a stern word for one of its advertisers: “It would be curious to learn how such a cad came to be a priest.”
Unlimited access to the 21st-century archive is free to all Church Times postal subscribers. Access to the 19th-century archive must be paid for, but at the reduced rate of just £5.99 for 30-day access.
Non-subscribers and newsagent customers can access thumbnails, but not the detailed pages. A five-day pass allowing full access costs £5.99. There are other tariffs for longer periods of access, and for libraries and institutions.
