Because you can cast spells just fine without an archive. However, you NEED a foundry to build traps, you NEED an alchemy lab to brew potions, and you NEED a sanctuary to cast rituals.
Doesn't really answer my question, spells usually come from books, the Archive contains books. Therefore I thought it would be appropriate to have an Archive to unlock spells just like it was in Dungeon Keeper.

Spells aren't researched anymore, they are unlocked.
Archives just increases the speed at which you acquire sins to unlock stuff with, but is not required to unlock or use spells wheras you can't build defenses without a foundry, perform rituals without a sanctuary, or brew potions without and alchemy lab.

They did after being defeated in the Arena, which we just have internally fixed. For now grabbing and dropping them should fix it, if they do so.
