The Institute for the Study of Global Anabaptism manages numerous initiatives designed to connect global church members to each other and to relevant scholarship.

Digital Resourcing, Archiving, and Networking

  • The Biblioteca Digital Anabautista (BiDA) offers Spanish-language electronic resources to students and pastors of Anabaptist identity in Latin America and North America. BiDA resources include the following topics: Anabaptism, Contextual Analysis, Biblical Studies, History, Christian Ministries, Peace and Justice, and Theology.
  • The Bibliothèque Numérique Anabaptiste (BiNA), similar to BiDA, offers French-language electronic resources to students and pastors of Anabaptist identity in Europe and Africa, especially.
  • The ISGA Research Fellows are international scholars involved in research related to global Anabaptist-Mennonite history and theology. They keep the ISGA connected to networks of global Anabaptist scholarship and support the work of the ISGA through research, writing, and by providing counsel to the ISGA director. Each individual scholar is also engaged in building connections among their discipline, research findings, and specific church contexts.
  • The Global Anabaptist Wiki is a user-generated global archives where church members can post information about their group in the language of choice with space for photos, articles, curriculum, and other resources. We have recently begun adding audio and video material from around the world, particularly Spanish-language materials and a series of French-language sermon recordings.
  • The Global Anabaptist Mennonite Encyclopedia Online provides reliable and freely-available information on Anabaptist-related congregations, denominations, conferences, institutions, and significant individuals, as well as historical and theological topics. The ISGA serves as the institutional home of GAMEO, in collaboration with six other institutional partners. ISGA Director Elizabeth Miller is the project’s general editor.
