Yale Divinity School STM Theses

 Collection
Call Number: RG 41

Scope and Contents

The theses in Series I (1939-1956) were submitted to YDS for a variety of degree programs. The theses in Series II (1975-1982) and those available in microfiche format in Series III (1975-2020) were submitted for the S.T.M. degree at Yale Divinity School. Series IV contains additional theses that have some Yale connection. The theses in this collection are mostly from Yale Divinity School, but some theses related to Yale or its collections are also included. Over the years there have been varying practices regarding the deposit of YDS theses in the Divinity Library. This collection is not comprehensive of all YDS theses ever submitted for degrees, but rather represents merely the ones that have been deposited in the library. The papers are grouped by the year in which they were submitted and are arranged alphabetically by author within each year.
