The Oden house is adjacent to the Yale Campus, and a short walk to Yale Divinity School. Sterling Memorial library and the Beineke Rare Book & Manuscript library are less than 1.5 miles from the house and easily accessible on the free Yale bus line.
The Institute for Classical Christian Studies (ICCS) was formed in 1993 from the proceeds of the highly acclaimed Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture. ICCS primarily supports and promotes the study of Early Christian literature. In July 2017, the Oden house opened under the sponsorship of the Institute for Classical Christian Studies, hosting visiting scholars and a specialized book collection and digital archive. Our collection features books from a variety of academic fields, with special focus in Early Christian Studies and Africa.
