|Educational institution to prepare clergy for their job.|
A seminary, school of theology, theological seminary, or divinity school is an educational institution for educating students (sometimes called seminarians) in scripture, theology, generally to prepare them for ordination to serve as clergy, in academics, or in Christian ministry.
Catholic seminaries often offer university degrees, which they have the opportunity to do by being affiliated with a university. Most are affiliated with one of the papal universities.
Most of the alumni listed on Wikispooks tend to be dissidents and liberal theologians, like Chris Hedges. Another group is hardline Cold Warriors with connections to the deep state intelligence apparatus.
