From 1907 until 1930, Lowrie was rector of St Paul's American Church in Rome. When he retired in 1930, he returned to Princeton and began what he called an "itinerant ministry." He published 39 books and numerous articles, including The Short Story of Jesus (1943) and Kierkegaard (1938). A Complete Bibliography of Walter Lowrie was compiled by Donald M. Fox, and published in 1979. From his retirement in 1930 until his death, Lowrie studied and translated the works of Søren Kierkegaard, the Danish nineteenth-century theologian. From 1939 until 1945, he published twelve volumes of Kierkegaard translations and worked very closely with fellow Kierkegaard translator David F. Swenson, who was working from the University of Minnesota. During his retirement, he traveled and lectured throughout the world. Lowrie died in Princeton and his wife, Barbara Armour, left his home, now known as the Walter Lowrie House, to the university. (en)
