Biographical / Historical

In 1816, the Society for the Promotion of Theological Education in Harvard University was organized to provide money for instruction in theology and to run the new-formed Harvard Divinity School. After 1830, the Divinity School faculty assumed direction of the School and dissolved the Society. A new Society for Promoting Theological Education was formed to replace it and continues today.
