Our Library

The Library of the Fellowship currently holds some 1000 titles. The core of the collection was Marian Dunlop’s personal library. This has been augmented by donations from members and a small number of titles are purchased each year.


The focus of the collection is on spirituality, religious experience and mysticism. It includes the experience and practice of other faiths.

The library is open to members at any time when Marian Dunlop House is open. Books are freely available on loan and may be requested by post. Non–members need to seek permission in advance and will be asked for a £25 deposit.
