Historical Note

The Theological Lyceum was an organization of Madison University students and faculty formed in 1854. According to former University Archivist Howard Williams:

Its purpose was to promote the 'intellectual, moral, and religious improvement of its members.' Topics for essays and discussions at its meetings included: Christianity and the Crimean War, spiritualism, freemasonry, and the propriety of a minister’s resorting 'to firearms or deadly weapons in defense of political rights.'The Lyceum became practically moribund in the 1860′s, but did not expire until 1871.
