Author Bio

Georgia Harkness (1891–1974) was a pioneering theologian in The Methodist Church. After graduating from Cornell University, she received a double master’s degree in Religious Education and the Arts and a Ph.D. in philosophy from Boston University. Her academic teaching career spanned almost forty years. Harkness taught philosophy and religious education at Elmira College (1922–1937) and Mt. Holyoke College (1938), and later was named Professor of Applied Theology at both Garrett Seminary, where she taught from 1939 to 1950, and Pacific School of Religion, where she taught from 1950 until her retirement in 1961. She thus had the distinction of becoming the first woman to teach theology in a Protestant seminary in the United States. Her almost forty books spanned subjects such as theology, devotional practices, philosophy of religion, ethics, and social issues. She was especially noted for aiming her work at laity and clergy rather than other scholars. Harkness was also a leading voice against racism and sexism, protesting both racial segregation and institutional discrimination against women, whether in the church or society at large. An ordained deacon in The Methodist Episcopal Church, her work led to the eventual abolishment of the segregated central jurisdiction of The Methodist Church and to the ordination of women in the denomination.
