We envision the Global Anabaptist Wiki to become a major site for primary sources related to the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition: from the 16th century to the present and in a wide variety of languages. Please post any public domain sources you think might be of interest to other users of AnabaptistWiki. Our staff will help to sort and organize source material into appropriate categories as it is added. Click here to view sources.

Adding sources

To add a source, first go to the Sources page and click the "edit" tab. Insert a link to your source under the section for your region and country using the following code: [[Your Source Title]]. This will create a red link (meaning the article does not exist yet). Follow this link to create a new page for your source.

After inserting your source material, be sure to insert the following code at the bottom of the page [[Category:Sources]]. This will create a link to your source material on the sources category page.

If you are adding source material in a language other than English (To learn about creating pages in languages other than English read about our language policy), add a language code to the end of the category code to create a link to the source in the appropriate sources category language page. For example, if you write a story in Spanish, you should insert the following code at the bottom of the page [[Category:Sources/es]]. This will create a link to your story on the category page for all stories written in Spanish.
