Collection Description

Biographical Note

Theodore R. Weber is Professor Emeritus of Social Ethics at Candler School of Theology, Emory University. He received his Ph.D. from Yale University. He is the author of Ethics and International Politics in the Thought of Don Luigi Sturzo (1958), Modern War and the Pursuit of Peace (1968), Foreign Policy Is Your Business (1972), and Politics in the Order of Salvation: New Directions in Wesleyan Political Ethics (2001).

Scope and Content Note

Weber’s papers document his education at Yale University Divinity School, his tenure at Candler School of Theology, and his activities as author and lecturer in the field of social ethics. Although there is little material directly related to Weber’s published books (with the exception of files from the writing of Foreign Policy Is Your Business), the papers include an extensive series of research files. The research files reveal the areas of interest which informed Weber’s teaching, his writing, and his lectures. These areas include Christian ethics, violence and revolution, human rights, international politics, peace studies, and the Vietnam conflict. Also included are files related to conferences and other professional events in which Weber participated, as well as files from Weber’s involvement with the Council on Religion and International Affairs from the 1960s through 1980s.

Arrangement Note

Organized into 8 series: (1) Yale University Divinity School, (2) Candler School of Theology, (3) Research Files, (4) Writings, (5) Speaking Engagements, (6) Correspondence, (7) Conferences and Events, and (8) Council on Religion and International Affairs.
