(a) Archives of the ELCT Northern Diocese, Moshi (ELCT/ND, Moshi)
Although at the moment not all documents are accessible, this is the most important archive on the Protestant side. The papers do not relate only to the history of the Northern diocese, but also to the development of the ELCT and the CCT.
(b) Archives of the Catholic Archdiocese, Tabora (Tabora Archives)
This collection contains valuable material, too. The organisation is excellent, there is even a subject catalogue. There are for instance minutes of the important meetings between church leaders and governmental representatives. Since the Catholic Episcopal Conference and the Protestant Christian Council in some cases formed joint delegations, the material is not confined to the Catholic Church only. Unfortunately photocopying is not allowed.
(c) Centre of the Christian Council of Tanzania, Dodoma (CCT, Dodoma)
The few documents which are accessible are not put in a good order. Of the Annual Reports of the CCT, only the volumes for 1983 and 1985 were available. Until the period of research there seemed to be no great interest in a good documentation.
(d) Centre of the Church of the Province of Tanzania (AC/CPT)
For the investigation about the development of the Christian Council these documents proved to be valuable. Especially important is a report about an evaluation carried out by Corat Africa in 1984/85.
(e) Archives of the ELCT North Western Diocese, Bukoba (ELCT/NWD, Bukoba)
The materials in Bukoba relate mainly to the history of the North Western Diocese. There are however also manuscripts of speeches and papers given by Josiah Kibira, the first African President of the Lutheran World Federation.
