On 7 Sept 2015 Dr William Tooman (St Andrews) and Dr Andrew Teeter (Harvard) will convene a research workshop: Standards of In/Cohesion in Ancient Jewish Literature. The closed-door workshop has been generously funded by the Carnegie Trust and the papers will be published by Mohr-Siebeck Verlag.
The Russell Trust has made a generous grant of £1000 towards our 5th December 2015 day conference on the contribution of St Mary’s College to Scottish theology and church life. 'In Principio Erat Verbum' is being organised by Dr Ian Bradley. See here for the programme.
The School is delighted to announce that Dr George Corbett will join the Faculty this autumn. More>>>

The School has climbed to first place in ‘Theology and Religious Studies’ in the 2016 Complete University Guide. Leap-frogging over Durham, Oxford, Cambridge and Exeter to be top of our subject league table is, says Head of School, Mark Elliott, 'an achievement that testifies to colleagues' commitment to make the School of Divinity at St Mary’s a most stimulating environment for learning theology'.
