The Cathedral Library is a modern theological lending library.  Members have access to:

  • A wide collection including books on theology, biblical studies, spirituality, philosophy, and ethics
  • Comprehensive resources on the history of the abbey
  • Language resources for reading Hebrew, New Testament Greek, Latin and Old English
  • A variety of newspapers, magazine and periodicals, including The Church Times, The Tablet and Theology
  • A quiet space to read, write or research

Visit the library

We are open daily during the week from 10am-2.30pm, and for 15 minutes before evening SACT and SACT+ courses. You can also visit 10am-1pm on the first Saturday of the month.

The library will be closed from Monday 10 June to move all of our books into the new library. We apologise for any inconvenience that this will cause. If you would like to borrow books during this time, please email the library and we will do our best to help.
