Bibles, service books, and special collections

  • CA PEI SPCA 016

  • 1682-2020

This collection consists of bibles, service books and other published items selected as special collections, primarily because they were acquired and/or used by St. Peter's Cathedral Church over the years. The selection will be reviewed periodically and items added or removed as new information is received related to their provenance and relationship to the church.

Exposition of the Creed. By John Lord Bishop of Chester

The title page is stamped "Library of Dr. Bray's Associates".

According to various sources, Dr. Thomas Bray (1656-1730) was an English reverend who created a system of parochial libraries in many of the thirteen American colonies. He was educated at All Souls' College of Oxford, where he received his bachelor's degree in 1678; he later received a doctorate in divinity at Oxford. Bray was ordained to the Church of England and later chosen to travel to the Province of Maryland to serve as Commissary (representative of the Church). He devoted himself to establishing parochial libraries in the colonies.

This stamp suggests the book was circulated as part of Dr. Bray's library system. How it came into the collection of St. Peter's Cathedral Church is unknown.

Self-Interpreting Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments

The "self-interpreting" bible, with notes by Rev. John Brown, D.D., is also referred to within St. Peter's Cathedral Church as "the Wadman Bible." Inside the pages of the book are an envelope addressed to T. Edgar McNutt from William H. H. Wadman, postmarked 22 August 1963, enclosing a letter asking that the bible be put into safekeeping at St. Peter's Cathedral. William Wadman notes that the bible contains a family record of the family of Henry D. Wadman. The genealogical information itself is listed on pages between the Old and New Testaments.
