Series 8, Subseries 5, Study of Religious Institutions in a Democratic Society, 1954-1961, was conducted by noted theologians including William Clancy, Arthur Cohen, William Gorman, Robert Gordis, F. Ernest Johnson, Robert Lekachman, William Lee Miller, Mark DeWolfe Howe, along with staff administrator John Cogley, and Consultants Reinhold Niebuhr and John Courtney Murray. This group wrote numerous articles for religious and secular magazines, contributed to volumes on religion in America, published pamphlets, lectured extensively, participated in symposia and seminars, and appeared on national radio and television programs. All this was done in an effort to clarify the underlying issue of controversial relations between Church and State and to raise the argument to a more rational level. This subseries contains correspondence, articles, transcripts, memoranda, and position papers.
