Martin E. Marty

Fairfax M. Cone Distinguished Service Professor Emeritus of the History of Modern Christianity




PhD (University of Chicago)

Martin Marty taught in the Divinity School, the Department of History, and the Committee on the History of Culture from 1963-1998. He focused chiefly on late eighteenth and twentieth century American religious history in the context of "Atlantic Culture." An ordained minister in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, Professor Marty put considerable effort into the Master of Divinity Program at the Divinity School. His six-year "Fundamentalism Project" for the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1988-1994) led him to enlarge his focus to global inter-religious concerns.
