The Sumners Series lectures bring visiting and residential scholars of the highest caliber to St. John the Divine to speak on their areas of expertise. These lectures are recorded and made available for viewing online. The series is named for the founder and first rector of St. John the Divine, the Rev. Tom Sumners, who highly valued teaching from the best minds in Christianity and hosted scholars to make their knowledge and expertise available to SJD and Houston.
