Historical Details

Build - Founding Year:
The history of theological education in Sydney’s Coptic Orthodox Church has deep roots. Prior to the inauguration of St. Cyril’s, a dedicated group of men and women undertook the service of establishing Pope Shenouda III Coptic Orthodox Theological College, the first Coptic Theological College established outside of Egypt. In later years the College, in a bid to better service the Church and Academy, restructured as an accredited institution: St Cyril’s Coptic Orthodox Theological College (SCTC). St Cyril’s now offers the first stand-alone Masters degree in Orthodox Theology according to the Coptic tradition. St Cyril’s is deeply indebted to the dedicated staff of Pope Shenouda III Theological College, and is very much the fruition of their efforts. Since its establishment, the College has educated hundreds of students, both in Sydney, and throughout the world through its distance studies program. Below, are the major milestones in the history of Coptic Theological education in Sydney.
