James Hardy Ropes (1866-1933) was an American theologian.[1][2] He graduated from Harvard College in 1889 and was an instructor there from 1895 to 1898 and an assistant professor until 1903.[3] Ropes was then appointed the Bussey Professor of New Testament criticism.[3] He occupied the Hollis Chair at Harvard Divinity School starting in 1910.[4] He was also the Chairman of Commission on Extension Courses and Dean of the University Extension.[5]

He led the funeral of Henry Bradford Endicott, for whom Ropes' boss, Harvard President A. Lawrence Lowell, served as a pall bearer with Governors Calvin Coolidge and Samuel W. McCall.[6]
