"From its roots as an Anglican evangelical movement driven by lay persons, this resource encompasses publications from the CMS and the latterly integrated South American Missionary Society. Documenting missionary work from the 19th to the 21st century, the periodicals include news, journals and reports offering a unique perspective on global history and cultural encounter."
This online portal makes available periodicals from the Church Missionary Society Archive, a collection relevant to missiology, world Christianity, and global history. Against the backdrop of colonialism and its decline, this resource covers themes from gender and families to medicine, education, the development of native churches, political conflict, social reform, linguistics, and exploration. Founded in 1799 as an Anglican evangelical movement, the Church Missionary Society (CMS) has been active across the globe, proving one of the key agents of evangelism in the non-Western world. The publications featured in Church Missionary Society Periodicals span more than 200 years of history. The periodicals were key in promoting the work of the society, fundraising, and reporting from a number of countries as well as communicating within mission communities. They offer an interesting perspective on world events through the eyes of an organization which shared a unique relationship with the countries and people with which it worked. Detailed woodcut illustrations and thousands of photographs offer a further angle on the societies' work as well as thought-provoking presentations of indigenous cultures. Church Mission Society (CMS) Periodicals database is comprised of two modules: I) Global Missions and Contemporary Encounters, 1804-2009 - made up of periodicals published by the CMS and the South American Missionary Society from 1804-2009; and II) Medical Journals, Asian Missions and the Historical Record, 1816-1986 - and includes periodicals and annual reports published by the CMS and its auxiliaries, and the Church of England Zenana Missionary Society, from 1816-1986. Module I's archival source is from the CMS collection at the Crowther Mission Studies Library, Oxford, UK, and Module II's materials originate from the CMS collection at the Cadbury Research Library, University of Birmingham, UK.

1 online resource : HTML, PDF, sound, color illustrations
There is no truly complete edition of Albert the Great (ca. 1200-1280) works, and the age and the rarity of the most complete one (Opera omnia, ed. A. Borgnet, Paris, 1890-1899, itself based on Opera omnia, ed. P. Jammy, Lyon, 1651) render it hard to access for many scholars. The new critical edition (sometimes called Editio Coloniensis), begun in 1951 led by the Albertus-Magnus-Institut of Bonn, offers a much more reliable text but will not be completed before many more decades. Scholars can use the present website in order to : 1) download image files (.pdf) of all of Albert's works which can be found in the Borgnet edition as well as the 21 volumes of the Jammy edition, in addition to a few other writings which have been edited individually and which, like the Borgnet and the Jammy editions, are too old to be covered by copyright law; 2) search electronically 24 of those works, using a search engine which is endowed with boolean operators and which gives access to more than 4.1 million words (corresponding to more than 10000 pages in print); 3) browse those same 24 works on line.
