Doctor of Divinity (D.D. or DD; Divinitatis Doctor in Latin) is an advanced or honorary academic degree in divinity. It is not to be confused with Doctor of Theology.

(Doctor of Theology, often stylized Th.D., is a research doctorate, in theology, awarded by universities and divinity schools such as Harvard Divinity School and many others. Many universities award a Ph.D. rather than a Th.D. to graduates of higher-level religious studies programs. Doctor of Sacred Theology is a research doctorate in theology, but particular to Catholic Pontifical Universities and Faculties. Doctor of Ministry is another doctorate-level religious degree.)
