The Protestant Seminary


The Protestant Seminary, generally known as the “Stift”, at 1b, quai Saint Thomas (the building on the right hand side inside the courtyard); Schweitzer used to come here very early in his theological career. Albert Schweitzer started theological and philosophical studies at the Strasbourg University and had a room in this big house built at the end of the 18th century. He became its temporary director in 1901, then its permanent director from 1903 to 1906. This is where he wrote the significant work on historical secret of Jesus’ life edited in 1906. The previous year, he had published his works of the musician and poet John-Sebastian Bach.

In the present Rodoph Peter room you’ll find a picture of the young Schweitzer, as well as a bas-relief of the doctor, place in 2009 in the entrance porch passage.
