Peter Maurin

We are interested in learning more about the core values and aspirations of Peter Maurin, a Socratic figure whose only published work is the incisive collection Easy Essays. Dorothy Day, the co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, has much more published material, but much of it is of a journalistic nature. According to Day, Maurin’s theological, political, and moral thought was foundational for her understanding of Christianity as well as to movement they founded.

An archive of Mauin’s papers is housed as a part of the Dorothy Day-Catholic Worker Collection at Marquette University.
