The Urantia Book Historical Society archive chronicles the philosophy, activities, and teachings of the Urantia Book from
its inception in the early 1910s to 2006. The collection consists of materials concerning Urantia Foundation and related groups,
such as administrative records, court documents, conference proceedings, correspondence, newspaper-clippings, audiovisual
material, Urantia book prints, essays, organizational publications and related research materials. Included are educational
materials of the Urantia Book, especially the Boulder School, and members' personal papers.
The Urantia Book, first published in 1955, is spiritual book that presents the origins, history, and destiny of humanity.
The teachings traverse concepts of the universe, life and teachings of Jesus from a Christian perspective, and personal spiritual
growth. The exact circumstances surrounding the origins of The Urantia Book are vague as the book is without an author, but
instead the writings are believed to be from celestial beings providing an "epochal" religious revelation. The Uranita Book
consists of 196 papers divided into four parts.
