The 'Stichting Het Réveil-archief' was founded in 1930 in order to collect material of and about the Réveil movement in The Netherlands. The Réveil movement was part of the nineteenth-century international revival of Christianity, which in the Netherlands influenced a number of important authors, such as Willem Bilderdijk and Isaäc da Costa, as well as having its effect on politics and in social welfare. The archive of the corporation mainly contains meeting documents, annual reports and correspondence, but there are also documents concerning the acquisition of new material such as books, documents, letters etc. and documents regarding the organization of exhibitions and workshops.
