Episcopal Divinity School embraces remarkable journeys.

Born from the merger of Episcopal Theological School and Philadelphia Divinity School in 1974, EDS's legacy in Cambridge, MA includes influential roles in movements like the Voting Rights Movement, women's ordination, LGBTQ+ advocacy, and much more. In 2017, EDS ventured to New York and developed a growing Anglican Studies program during its six-year affiliation with Union Theological Seminary. With theological education at a crossroads, EDS has a new opportunity to discern its future as an independent venture through a transformative, year-long strategic planning process. EDS will continue in its commitment to theological education, faith, and social justice and invites your contribution to shaping its future journey.
