Not to be confused with Edinburgh Theological Seminary.

Edinburgh Theological College was founded in 1810 to train Anglican clergy to serve in the Scottish Episcopal Church.[1] In 1891 the college moved to Coates Hall[2] in Grosvenor Crescent[3] where it gradually expanded to include residential accommodation and a library.[4] The college’s academic hood was black lined with thistle green.[5] The college closed in 1994 and the site is now used by St Mary’s Music School.[6]
