Ely Theological College was a school in Ely, Cambridgeshire, for training clergy in the Church of England. Founded in 1876 [1] by James Woodford, Anglican Bishop of Ely, [2] the college had a strong Anglo-Catholic tradition.[3] Ely's "ritualistic" (i.e. "Catholic") tendencies were attacked by Mr Samuel Smith MP[4] in a House of Commons debate in 1899.[5] The college closed in 1964.
