This page includes links to collections which offer further information about Mennonites and Anabaptists.


"Bearing Witness: Martyrdom and Costly Discipleship in the Anabaptist-Mennonite Tradition" This collection includes resources on topics related to martyrdom, costly discipleship, and the challenge of memory among groups in the Anabaptist-Mennonite tradition.


Anabaptist-Mennonite Confessions, Catechisms, Position Papers In 2012, GAMEO transferred its online library (then called the Anabaptist Mennonite Ethereal Library) containing the full texts of significant Mennonite confessions of faith and position statements on a variety of issues. These valuable sources can now be found here.


"Right Remembering": Anabaptist-Mennonites in Conversation with Other Christians This collection offers a window into the relatively recent involvement of Mennonite (and Anabaptist-related groups) in ecumenical engagements of various sorts. Some expressions of Mennonite ecumenicity have emerged in response to formal invitations from other Christian groups seeking a "healing of memory" in light of the conflict that surrounded our origins in the 16th century. Other ecumenical encounters have been more informal--lay initiatives seeking deeper understanding and reconciliation at a local level. This site provides access to bibliographic information on Anabaptist-Mennonite ecumenical involvements, texts of working papers and formal statements, an overview of the emerging reception history and links to other resources.
