Abraham Kuyper (1837-1920) was the greatest and most controversial figure in the
Calvinist renaissance that took place at the conclusion of the nineteenth century and
the opening of the twentieth in The Netherlands. The Abraham Kuyper Center sponsors
conferences, programs, and publication series inspired by the example of Abraham Kuyper
to engage theologically with all spheres of life and work.
Karl Barth (1886-1968), the Swiss-German professor and pastor, is regarded by many as a
modern day "Church Father." The Center for Barth Studies was established at Princeton
Theological Seminary in 1997. Administered by a board of seminary faculty, the Center
sponsors conferences, research opportunities, discussion groups, and publications.
The Center for Black Church Studies at Princeton Theological Seminary exists to highlight
the theological and religious witness, which arises out of the African American and
African Diaspora Christian experience. The center helps to prepare men and women for
vocational ministry or scholarly pursuits shaped by a wider knowledge and deeper
appreciation of black life within American and global Christianity.
The purpose of the Center for the Study of Scottish Philosophy (CSSP) is to promote and
encourage the highest levels of research and study of Scottish philosophy. The CSSP is
under the direction of Gordon Graham, Henry Luce III Professor of Philosophy and the
Arts at Princeton Theological Seminary. He is founding editor of the Journal of Scottish
Philosophy and general Editor of the Oxford History of Scottish Philosophy.
