Dr. Oscar Cole-Arnal has taught at Waterloo Lutheran Seminary since the Fall of 1975 in the field of Church History.
Born and raised in a small steel town in Western Pennsylvania, he attended Thiel College (Greenville, Pennsylvania), where he earned a Bachelor's degree in the field of history.His Bachelor of Divinity degree was attained at the Philadelphia Lutheran Seminary.While serving in two pastorates in his natal state (1966- 1972), he went to graduate school where he earned three degrees, a Masters in New Testament (Pittsburgh Theological Seminary) and a Masters and Doctorate in Modern European History (University of Pittsburgh).During that time he won a Ford Foundation grant and a Mellon fellowship which enabled him to do research on his dissertation in Paris, France.
Since coming to Waterloo Lutheran Seminary he has received four internal grants and two major Humanities and Social Science Research Council of Canada grants which sent him to France and Quebec for further research in his field of French Catholic studies.Since 1985 Oz (as he is called) has published five books, two on French Catholicism, one on the history of our seminary, one on the history of Kitchener's St. Peter's congregation (in collaboration with other church members) and his most recent To Set the Captives Free: Liberation Theology in Canada.His earlier Priests in Working Class Blue: The History of the Worker-Priests has been translated into French.
Currently he is writing a text about women in Christian history.Most recently he was invited to present two papers in Brussels, Belgium (1998 and 2000) on a French Catholic grass-roots worker movement called the Jeunesse Ouvrière Chrétienne, and in the summer of 2001 he, Tim Hegedus and Oz' stepdaughter Sarah Lamble were part of a team of researchers at the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., where they worked on French Christians who rescued Jews during World War II.
Oz and his wife Bonnie, a United Church of Canada minister, worship at Christ Lutheran Church, Waterloo where they are both active.Dr. Cole-Arnal has two grown-up sons, William and Bradley and three adult stepdaughters, Elizabeth, Barbara and Sarah.
