What's New

An additional 24 issues of Right On, the Christian World Liberation Front newspaper, have been added to the Newspapers, Journals and Pamphlets digital content site. The issues now extend from July 1969 through December 1972. These are amazing documents about the Jesus movement in Berkeley as captured by the most academic of Christian underground newspapers.

Special Collections and Archives at the Graduate Theological Union offer a variety of digital resources on theological education, social justice, art and religious activities in the West.

The online exhibits reflect the collections at the GTU and provide primary sources that assist scholars and students in their research.

Special Collections and Archives at the Graduate Theological Union, founded in 1962, was formally established in 1989.

The collection records the American religious experience in the West, religious dialogue, the Christian and wider religious intellectual heritage, and the ministries of the GTU's member schools and centers.

Housed are over 400 different collections and 1500 linear feet of archival, manuscript and non-textual materials, as well as more than 10,000 rare books and pamphlets.

Finding aids to the collection are located at Online Archive of California or through GRACE.
