“We are thrilled to know our resources for teaching Christian philosophy, as well as 19th-century continental philosophy (including critics of Christianity), will soon be greatly enhanced,” associate professor of philosophy and department chair Danny Muñoz-Hutchinson said, according to a university press release.

St. Olaf College is home to the Howard and Edna Hong Kierkegaard Library.

The donors have chosen to remain anonymous.
