Wycliffe College is a vital institution of Christian teaching and learning, engaging scholars, seminarians, masters and doctoral students across the theological disciplines. Among its special commitments is the intellectual renewal of Scriptural and Theological study as a mutually informing discipline in the service of the Christian Church.
The Wycliffe Center for Scripture and Theology will serve this purpose by:
1. Offering regular for-credit seminars on the theological study of Scripture, which will include exegesis, hermeneutics, history of interpretation, and Scriptural theology.
2. Organizing regular colloquia at Wycliffe – one per semester – that will bring a leading scholar and several younger scholars together with faculty and Advanced Degree students for discussion of current work being done in these areas.
3. Foster an atmosphere among interested faculty and students at Wycliffe and the Toronto School of Theology that strengthens scholarly collegiality and mission.
