Princeton Theological Seminary
Princeton Theological Seminary is a professional and graduate school operated by the Presbyterian Church USA in Princeton, New Jersey. It was established in 1812, when higher-level professional education was beginning to be separated from the general education taught at many universities in the United States. Princeton Theological Seminary was begun with the support of the directors of nearby Princeton University as a place to prepare people for the ministry.
The seminary was made famous during the 19th and early 20th centuries for its defense of Calvinistic Presbyterianism. The college was later the center of a modernist/fundamentalist battle which ultimately led to the formation of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and Westminster Theological Seminary under the leadership of J. Gresham Machen.
Notable theologians and scholars from the seminary include:
- Archibald Alexander
- A. A. Hodge
- Charles Hodge
- J. Gresham Machen
- Bruce Metzger
- Geerhardus Vos
- Cornelius Van Til
- B. B. Warfield
- Robert Dick Wilson
