Collection Overview

The Frederick Herzog Papers span the years 1947-2011 with the bulk of the material spanning the years 1947-1995, the year of Herzog's death. These papers provide rich documentary evidence on the historical connections between religion, the Civil Rights Movement, and human rights. The material covers specific areas in which Herzog was involved such as the Civil Rights Movement in Durham and other parts of North Carolina, Durham and Duke University history, student unrest in the 1960s, and human rights issues in Peru in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The collection includes video and audiocassettes regarding Herzog's involvement in Peru and various lectures and classes on theology. His work as a professor at the Duke Divinity School and with various other theological and civil rights organizations is documented in the correspondence he sent to and received from various individuals and groups, as well as in the various committee documents and minutes that record his professional activity in the university. The bulk of material on courses taught and lectures given by Herzog, as well as his participation in both the student exchange program with the University of Bonn and in the Peru and Bolivia student exchange program, can be found in his notebooks and course materials. A large part of this collection is comprised of Herzog's research files on religion, civil rights, labor organizing, racial issues, and protest in North Carolina and nationally, including Herzog's own participation in civil disobedience. Noteable research projects include his work in Peru, his work with the United Church of Christ (UCC) and the Evangelical Church of the Union (EKU), and his work with black churches and theology. This collection also contains original annotated drafts of a variety of Herzog's publications, sermons, speeches and lectures.

Historical Note

A native of North Dakota, Frederick Herzog earned his doctorate from Princeton University after having studied in Germany and Switzerland, where he was an assistant to professor Karl Barth. In 1960, he joined the faculty at Duke Divinity School. Herzog taught religion at Duke until his sudden death during a faculty meeting in 1995. In the spring of 1970 he wrote the first North American article on liberation theology, and in 1972 his Liberation Theology was published. In Justice Church Herzog extended his methodology for liberation theology in North America. While his theology grew directly out of the Civil Rights struggle of the US South, not out of Latin America, his writings in the last 8 years of his life were strongly affected by his experiences in Latin America, especially in Peru. An article by Herzog, "New Spirituality as Grassroots of New Doctrine," was published posthumously in On the Way: The Teaching Church, edited by Frederick Trost.

Herzog's books include: Liberation Theology, Understanding God, God Walk,and Justice Church. Four books have been published referring to his work: Theology and Corporate Conscience: Essays in Honor of Frederick Herzog, edited by M.D. Meeks, J. Moltmann, F.R.
