Christopher Dawson (1889-1970) was an English Catholic intellectual and author of books, articles, and scholarly monographs on the relation of religion and culture and on the Christian sources for the development of western civilization. His intellectual interests were remarkably comprehensive and covered a wide range of historical periods and cultural contexts. During his career he was a Gifford lecturer, the first recipient of the Chauncey Stillman Chair of Roman Catholic Studies at Harvard University (1958-1962) and editor of the Dublin Review.
A selection of his personal papers are included in this digital collection. For more complete information on the Christopher Dawson Papers at the University of St. Thomas see: http://www.stthomas.edu/libraries/special/rare/dawson/
