William Harry Marshner is a convert to Catholicism (in the Melkite Greek Catholic Church), a Thomistic theologian, ethicist, and a founding professor at Christendom College in Front Royal, Virginia, where he was chairman of the theology department in the early days of the college. He is the co-author of Cultural Conservatism: A New National Agenda.

Cultural conservatism[edit]

With William S. Lind, Marshner wrote the 1987 book Cultural Conservatism: A New National Agenda, which Lew Daly has described as "a new principled framework for policies that would strengthen traditional religious culture".[1] Writing for The Wall Street Journal, Ed Crane noted that the book was significant for its "open break with Mr. Reagan's now-forsaken individualistic, rights-oriented brand of conservatism" but called it "a deeply, dangerously flawed book".[2] The National Review observed that the book had caused "a considerable stir in conservative circles and in the press" and called the book "intellectually and politically challenging".[3] In her 2002 book Killing for Life: The Apocalyptic Narrative of Pro-life Politics, scholar Carol Mason credited Marshner as one of the "architects of cultural conservatism", which was a distinctive form of conservatism emphasizing morality and "privileging culture over economics".[4]


Since 1975, he has been married to Connaught Coyne, with whom he has four children. Following their marriage he returned to graduate studies in 1975, earning a Master of Arts degree from the University of Dallas and, more recently, the licentiate and doctoral degrees in sacred theology from the Lateran University in Rome.

From 1977 until his retirement in 2014, Marshner taught theology at Christendom College.
