Wesleyana Collection

Victoria University Library owns one of the finest, most complete early edition collections in North America of the works by John and Charles Wesley.

The majority of the collection came from the library of the Rev. Richard Green (1829-1907); the collection has been supplemented by critical and biographical works on the Wesley family.

All works in the Wesleyana Collection have been catalogued in the University of Toronto Library catalogue, and are identified by library location, Victoria (Emmanuel) Wesleyana collection.

Artifacts and manuscripts

The United Church Archives owns a complimentary collection of Wesleyana artifacts and manuscripts. Digital images of a sample of Wesleyana items are also available.
