EDS was established at Cambridge, Massachusetts, on June 6, 1974, by the merger of the Philadelphia Divinity School and the Episcopal Theological School, Cambridge, with the encouragement of the Episcopal Church's Board for Theological Education. The faculty and student body are mostly Christians, but other faith communities are represented as well. The mission of EDS is to prepare women and men for ministry, lay or ordained, in the church and the world. Feminist liberation theology and feminist biblical studies are important aspects of the curriculum.
