Wycliffe College

This college was founded in 1877 to prepare men of evangelical conviction for the Anglican ministry. Four years earlier, a group of Anglican clergy and laity committed to evangelical principles had formed the Church Association of the Diocese of Toronto. The Association brought a noted theologian and administrator, the Reverend James Paterson Sheraton, from Nova Scotia to establish the Protestant Episcopal Divinity School and serve as its Principal and first Professor. It opened on October 1, 1877 in St James' Cathedral Schoolhouse in Toronto and, in 1882, moved to a newly constructed building on College Street near the University. The school, renamed Wycliffe College in 1885, federated with the University of Toronto in 1889 and moved to its present location in 1891.
