es, and a weekly exercise in the original, or in the English version, will be 
required of every student. 



THEOLOGICAL DEPARTMENT. 

The following course has been adopted for those whose want of previous 
advantages, renders it desirable for tiiem to pursue Literary studies in con- 
nection with those more strictly Theological.

Philosophy, Algebra and Greek, commenced.

The Literary Studies in the early part of this Course will be varied to 
suit the capacities of Tlieological students, who will be welcomed to all the 
advantages of this institution in any stage of literary advancement, free of 
all charge for instruction. 



For those who have completed a College Course, or such literary studies 
as may enable them, witli advantage, to devote their entire time to prepara- 

j tion for the Ministry, a more tliorough course of Theological instruction is 

I arranged. This is the same as that usually pursued in Theological Semi- 
naries, occupying three years, and embracing, in addition to the Theological 

I studies, for such as are also receiving literary instruction, specified above. 

In Sacred Literature and Exegesis, Hebrew, and a more critical examina- 

i tion of all the books of the Old and New Testaments. 

I In Systematic Theology, a more extensive course of study, (witli the pre- 
paration of Essays,) on the principal topics of Natural Religion, doctrines 
of Revelation, and Constitution, Ordinances and Discipline of the Christian 

i Ciiurch. 

I In Church History, a critical examination of the history of tiio more iin- 

I portant Heresies and Errors, the preservation of the true Christian faith and 

I practice. 

I In Sacred Rhetoric, more time and attention will also bo bestowed on the 
preparation of Plans and Criticis:n of Sermons.

I this arrangement, the pupils can be with their friends during the unhealthy

rion presents fewer temptations to extravagance than any other town in Ala- 
bama.
