1 Goodwin, William A. R. History of the Theological Seminary in Virginia and Its Historical Background (Two Volume Set)
New York Edwin S. Gorham 1923 Hardcover Very Good 
xix, (7), 684; 678 pages; Clean and tight in original dark red cloth bindings with gilt lettering at spines and front covers, cloth a bit faded at spines and edges. Virginia Theological Seminary , also known as the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary in Virginia, is the largest accredited Episcopal seminary in the United States. Founded in 1818, VTS is situated on an 80-acre campus in Alexandria, Virginia. A small group of dedicated men committed themselves to the task of recruiting and training a new generation of church leaders following the Revolutionary War. Francis Scott Key was one of this group which, in 1818, formed "An Education Society" and five years later opened the "School of Prophets," to become the Protestant Episcopal Theological Seminary in Virginia. When the school opened in Alexandria with two instructors, 14 students were enrolled. During the Civil War, the school was occupied by troops; after the war, two professors and 11 veterans reopened the seminary on a campus that had been used to house 1,700 wounded Federal troops and to bury 500 soldiers. On June 3, 1953, Virginia Seminary merged with the Bishop Payne Divinity School, a distinguished African-American institution started by Virginia Seminary in 1878. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings.
