Theologians Ask For United Holy City

Three members of the Divinity School and twelve other Christian theologians across the United States have indicated support for Reinhold Niebuhr, Florence Corliss Lamont Professor of Divinity, in asking that "the unity of the City of Jerusalem under Israeli authority be preserved."

Krister Stendahl, Frothingham Professor of Biblical Studies, Frank M. Cross, Hancock Professor of Hebrew and Other Oriental Languages, and George H. Williams, Hallis Professor of Divinity, signed a statement by Niebuhr saying that "we see no justification in the proposals which seek once again to destroy the unity which has been restored to Jerusalem."
