Divinity School

Divinity School ShieldThe Yale Divinity School Quadrangle includes eight wings, which are undergoing thorough renovation. They had been used as dormitories and offices. Five of these wings are named after:

  • Samuel Hopkins, a strong abolitionist voice in Rhode Island around the time of the American Revolution.
  • Leonard Bacon, a leader of the colonizationist movement and a moderate anti-slavery activist.
  • Nathaniel Taylor, the first professor of a newly formed Divinity School, who concluded student-led disputations with pro-slavery decisions throughout the 1840s and 1850s.
  • Moses Stuart, a theology professor at Andover who published a scriptural defense of slavery.
  • Lyman Beecher, a colonizationist mentored closely by Timothy Dwight.
