Nisibis Assyrian Theological College
Nisibis Assyrian Theological College is the official theological College of the Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East – Archdiocese of Australia, New Zealand and Lebanon. The College was established in 2020 and began to deliver SCD courses at the beginning of 2021 to provide theological education in the tradition of the Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East.
The ancient theological school at Nisibis (in modern Turkey) was famed throughout the eastern churches but disappeared during the seventh century after a notable history of achievement in the face of various challenges. Since that time the church’s leaders have undertaken theological training in the institutions of other churches, while continuing, through the grace of God, to preserve its own traditions in the Middle East and wherever its people have been led in diaspora.
After many centuries, the church has now realised its vision of establishing its own theological college once more, here in Australia, from whence it serves the whole of its church in diaspora, as well as other interested people. Nisibis is committed to providing high-quality, innovative, accredited theological education that strengthens the preservation of its cultural, intellectual, and spiritual heritage in the context of modern Australia and the contemporary world. Nisibis welcomes enrolment applications both from those preparing for a clerical role in the church and from lay people
