Victorian London - Charities - Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge

Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, 67 Lincoln's Inn Fields; established 1698. This venerable Society has largely contributed to the improvement of our population by its religious, educational, and instructive publications, these having been largely circulated through its members and local committees, or been presented in necessitous cases by the parent Society. Our soldiers and sailors, the inmates of our workhouses, the prisoners in our gaols, and the population of our Colonies, have benefited largely by the efforts and liberality of this institution ; while its numerous translations of the Holy Scriptures have carried Christianity, and much useful knowledge, to a large portion of the world.
