Sub-Section H.20: John Edgar Raub Papers (Fr. Jacob, OCSO)

John E. Raub was a priest from 1962-1972. He became a Trappist monk (in religious life, Fr. Jacob) of the Abbey of Gethsemani for twenty-eight years from 1972-2000. After being dispensed from the priesthood, he married Ann B. Hunter in June 2001. He was he author of two books: the first, as a Trappist writing under John Jacob Raub in 1992, Who Told You that You Were Naked: Freedom from Judgment, Guilt and Fear of Punishment; and the second as John Edgar Raub in 2014, Francis Repair My Church: Pope Francis Revives Vatican II. Both books are available in the Merton Center Archives with inscriptions by Raub.
