Theology education reform proposals at the turn of the XX century based on the analysis of “Diocesan Bishops on Church Reform”

Tatyana Krylova
pp. 11–29
The author of the article makes an attempt at systematising proposals for reforming college- and university-level theology education. “Diocesan Bishops on Church Reform” was published in 1906 in St Petersburg, ahead of the reform discussion at the 1917–1918 Local Council. When the Bolsheviks came to power, theology schools faced an uncertain future, meaning that theology education entered the Soviet era unreformed. Following the 1994 Bishops’ Council, the Russian Orthodox Church reopened the discussion on the subject of reforming theology education. “Diocesan Bishops on Church Reform” is a valuable source, as it reflects the full range of reform programmes existing at the time.
Keywords: Diocesan Bishops on Church Reform, theology education reform, theology school regulations, 1917–1918 Local Council.
