Scope and Content Note

This is a collection of 182 photocopied pages of mimeographed notes of a Christian Ethics class taught by H. Richard Niebuhr at Yale in the winter and spring terms of 1952. It includes an outline of his lectures, additional readings, assignments, and lecture notes. The notes were assembled by a group of four students in the class.

These notes came to the Pitts Theology Library from a donor who acquired the notes from an unidentified clergy friend. It is unclear if the friend was one of the students who assembled the class notes. The location of the original mimeographed pages is unknown.
