Eden Theological Seminary is a seminary of the United Church of Christ. It was established in 1850 by German pastors in what was then the American frontier. The pastors soon formed the German Evangelical Synod of North America. This, after subsequent mergers, became a part of the United Church of Christ. Conversations at Eden Theological Seminary, beginning in 1937, led to the 1957 merger of the Evangelical and Reformed Church and Congregational Christian Church and the formation of the United Church of Christ. Famous alumni of Eden include Reinhold Niebuhr, H. Richard Niebuhr, and Walter Brueggemann. It is located in Webster Groves, near St. Louis.
