Please notice: The Evangelical Archives are closed at the moment.

For the wellbeing of our visitors, staff, volunteers and suppliers, we have decided to close The Evangelical Archives until further notice.

Please use our online services as announced on the right.

If you have any questions about our archives or our holdings, please send us an email.

The Evangelical Central Archives in Berlin have the responsibility for the documents of the Evangelical Church in Germany (EKD) and the Union of Evangelical Churches in Germany (UEK) as also their predecessors. The Evangelical Central Archives also collect personal papers of important evangelical personages, documents of associations and societies of cross-regional importance. Among its holdings there are about 6,000 parish registers from German parishes belonging to the former Prussian church.

The main purpose of the Evangelical Central Archives is to decide whether documents are assigned a lasting value, to preserve them permanently and to make them available for use. Usage on the premises is possible at any time during the opening hours under the provisions of the archival law.
