Albert Schweitzer

I too had thoughts once of being an intellectual, but I found it too difficult. - Albert Schweitzer

German-born Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965) was a theologian, philosopher, musicologist, medical missionary, and Nobel laureate.

Schweitzer was ordained as the curate of the Lutheran Church of Saint Nicholas in Strasbourg in 1900; a year later he became principal of the theological seminary there. In music he gained fame as an organist and authority on organ construction.

Schweitzer established his reputation as a theologian with The Quest of the Historical Jesus (1906; trans. 1910), in which he interpreted the life of Jesus in the light of Jesus' beliefs about death and afterlife. In other theological studies such as The Mysticism of Paul the Apostle (1930; trans. 1931), Schweitzer examined the New Testament from the viewpoint of its reputed authors—for example, Schweitzer examined Paul’s letters to learn about his personal experience of the divine.

At the age of 30 Schweitzer turned away from the successful career he had established in theology and music. From 1905 to 1913 he studied medicine and surgery with the intention of serving humanity by becoming a medical missionary in Africa. In 1913 he and his wife, a trained nurse, went to Lambaréné, French Equatorial Africa (now in Gabon), and set up a hospital.

He returned frequently to Europe to lecture, give organ recitals, visit his family, and raise money for his hospital which provided care for thousands of Africans. In 1952 he received the Nobel Peace Prize. Schweitzer died in Lambaréné on September 4, 1965. His daughter, Rhena, took over the administration of the hospital after his death.
