Albert Schweitzer Autograph Peace Nobel Price Winner 1952

Authentic Albert Schweitzer autograph: Portrait photo-print with hand-written lines and signature.
The Autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

14,5 x 10,5 cm. At the upper margin at the back traces from glue can be found. The writing is slightly faded.

The text reads:

A mon table de Lambaréné à monsieur Antoine Fischer.
Albert Schweitzer. Lambaréné 2.1.1964

Albert Schweitzer (1875 – 1965) was a French-German theologian, organist, philosopher, and physician. He was born in the province of Alsace-Lorraine, at that time part of the German Empire, though he considered himself French and wrote mostly in French.

Schweitzer, a Lutheran, challenged both the secular view of Jesus as depicted by historical-critical methodology current at this time in certain academic circles, as well as the traditional Christian view. His contributions to the interpretation of Pauline Christianity are noteworthy because they concern the role of Paul’s mysticism of “being in Christ” as primary in importance rather than the secondary doctrine of Justification by Faith.

He received the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize for his philosophy of “Reverence for Life”, expressed in many ways, but most famously in founding and sustaining the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréné, now in Gabon, west central Africa (then French Equatorial Africa). As a music scholar and organist, he studied the music of German composer Johann Sebastian Bach and influenced the Organ reform movement (Orgelbewegung).
