A Half a Century of Contribution

The Oxford Institute has reached the half-century mark in its scholarly work in service to Wesleyan and Methodist traditions. It is our desire to make the fruits of this work as widely available as possible. Accordingly, we provide this public access to the basic archives of the Institute.

Each Institute link below takes you to a page which gives details on the speakers and venue for that meeting, along with a link to a list of attendants.

• Starting in 1982 there are also details on Working Groups within each Institute, and indication of where Working Group papers have been published.

• Starting in 2002 there are links to some Working Group papers not published elsewhere.
