PILLAY, Jerry  y  WOMACK, Jonathan. The correlation and separation of academic theology and the local church. Studia Hist. Ecc. [online]. 2018, vol.44, n.3, pp.1-16. ISSN 2412-4265.

This article provides an overview of the historical correlation between the church and academic theology as well as a brief account of its demise. In assessing the correlation it is demonstrated how, for the first 1 500 years of Christian history, a correlation between academic learning and the church was the norm. A brief outline of the demise of this tradition is shown to allow the reader to comprehend how the correlation faded. At a time when the future of academic theology is under great discussion, this article provides a somewhat forgotten history that can add great weight to the current debate on church and the academy.

Palabras clave : theological education; academics; church; historical overview; pastor-theologian.
