Bob Prichard and Tim Sedgwick
The Rev. Robert W. Prichard, Ph.D., joined the Seminary Faculty as an adjunct in 1980 and full time in 1983, retiring as the Arthur Lee Kinsolving Professor Emeritus of Christianity in America. Dean Markham has said of Bob, “His impact has been considerable. Generations of seminarians have been shaped by his rich understanding of American Christianity and the history of the Episcopal Church … All in all, Bob has been extraordinary. He is a giant in this place; his impact will continue to be felt in the Seminary and throughout the Episcopal Church.” Bob’s remarkable ministry will be highlighted in the fall issue of Virginia Theological Seminary Magazine.
Timothy F. Sedgwick, Ph.D. joined the faculty in 1997 and retires in August as the Clinton S. Quin Professor of Christian Ethics. From 2007-2013 he served as vice president for Academic Affairs. A scholar, teacher, and friend to countless seminarians, alumni, faculty and staff, Tim leaves a rich legacy of teaching, scholarship, and leadership as academic dean. The current issue of Virginia Theological Seminary Magazine includes a piece highlighting the many gifts Tim has offered to VTS, the Episcopal Church, and the broader Church through his extensive ecumenical work. Several reflections are offered by faculty colleagues that, combined, provide a comprehensive portrait of this gifted member of the VTS community.
