Welcome to the Phillips Brooks Conference

Date: January 25, 2024

From time to time, the Dean’s Office hosts an academic conference. This one is especially important. We are looking at the work of our alum, Phillips Brooks. Participants are making the journey to the campus. It is a joy to welcome to the campus Karen Prior, Lanie Flanagan, Mary Cate Curley, Morgan Allen, and Rachel Gardner.

I am grateful to our Dean’s Advisor for Partnerships, the Rev. Dr. Robert Flanagan, who has put together this august gathering. His interest in Brooks is enduring. The hymn writer, the church man, the Bishop, the creator of an amazing holy space in Boston – all this and more is a result of Phillips Brooks.

Welcome to the participants.

The Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, Ph.D.
Dean and President of Virginia Theological Seminary and the President of The General Theological Seminary
