Trinity crest drops Bible

04 April 2014

TRINITY COLLEGE DUBLIN

THE "rebranding" of Trinity College, Dublin, which is currently under way, will mean that the Bible is removed from its crest.

Besides adopting the proposal by the Provost of Trinity, Dr Patrick Prendergast, to rename the institution "Trinity College, the University of Dublin", the college is altering its shield so that the clasped Bible is replaced by an open book - to demonstrate openness and inclusivity, the board said.

The decisions have been taken after an initiative "to create a shared visual identity" that tells "a more cohesive and powerful story about what Trinity wishes to achieve in the future".
