Dartmouth College. Christian Fraternity



The Christian Fraternity was founded in 1875 to carry out the roles of the preceding Christian organizations, namely he Theological Society, the Society of Inquiry, and the Theological and Missionary Society. The name change came about in an effort to move away from the impression the previous name gave that it was a formal academic society. Under the name of the Christian Fraternity, members still sought to live according to Christian ideals, but the new name supported the notion that they understood the role of a religious society in a college context.
