The Purpose of SBGAS

The purpose of the Sabine Baring-Gould Appreciation Society has been to enable those interested in Sabine Baring-Gould and his work to share their enthusiasm and to spread that enthusiasm among others. Now that we have agreed to wind up SBGAS in its current form it is our intention to create a less formal organisation as a way of spreading information and to act as a point of contact for those who wish to know more about Baring-Gould and his work.

Several former members of the Society have been actively engaged in research projects related to Sabine Baring-Gould’s life and work and have shared their work with members through articles in the SBGAS Newsletter or Transactions. We will ensure that these publications remain available through this website.

SBGAS Constitution

You can read a copy of the constitution of the Society HERE. While much of its content is no longer relevant, it describes the process we are going through to wind-up SBGAS and create its successor.

The Officers of the Society

None of the officers of the Society were re-elected at the AGM in October 2018.

SBGAS Publications

Two publications were produced by SBGAS:

The SBGAS Newsletter was issued in February, June and October each year and sent to SBGAS members. As well as news about the Society they contain short articles and scraps about Sabine Baring-Gould. Most of the newsletters are to be found on this website and we will provide a complete run in the near future. 

The Transactions of the Sabine Baring-Gould Appreciation Society were produced annually from 2001 to 2018 and contain transcripts of some of the talks given at the Annual Gathering as well as occasional reprints of articles by Sabine Baring-Gould and other material of interest. Copies can be read on this website.
