The Diocese of Virginia was the primary founding community of both the Virginia Theological Seminary and the Bishop Payne Divinity School. Throughout the history of both institutions, the Diocese of Virginia exercised continual close ties with and influence on these seminaries. As many graduates of both VTS and BPDS served within the Diocese of Virginia, they significantly influenced the development of the diocese and its institutions. While not the official repository of the Diocese of Virginia, many of the historical collections of its former historiographers and records of its institutional ministries have been donated to the Archives of VTS.
