The P.K. Yonge Library maintains a collection of print and microfilm materials on organized religions and religious activities within the colony, territory, and state of Florida.
Holdings include histories of denominations, parishes, and churches; journals of assemblies, meetings, and conferences; newspapers; newsletters.
Information on the colonial church is contained within the library's vast holdings on Spanish Florida. Especially important is Section 25 of the East Florida Papers, "Letters to and from the Bishop in Havana or New Orleans and the Governor's letters with the Vicar of East Florida, 1786-1821"
For British Period Florida, 1763-1783,
researchers may wish to consult the microfilm of the Fulham Papers of the
Lambeth Palace Library as well as the general correspondence and
other communications directed to the Bishops of London from North America
and the West Indies during the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
