School of Theology


In the context of the pluralism of modern cultures, the School of Theology offers a program of formation marked by a strong Christocentrism, an orientation based on the conviction that a deep knowledge of the mystery of Christ is the perennial foundation for the transformation of human beings and the world.

The School’s formative agenda in both the educational and research levels is translated into the following choices of method and content:

  • A presentation of the intrinsic connection between the revealed truths as expression of the mystery of the Trinity and of its communication of love in Christ;
  • The mystery of the whole Christ, Head and Body, as the deep foundation of the essentially ecclesial character of any theological reflection–communion with the Church, with her doctrine, tradition, liturgy etc., is a necessary premise to any pursuit of theological knowledge of Revelation;
  • The intimate connection between the divinity and humanity of Christ as the light by which one understands the relation between faith and reason, both in theology and in one’s worldview, consequently deepening the meaning of created realities and their autonomy, and giving rise to a spirit of openness to a peaceful encounter with the natural, historical and social sciences;
  • The call to holiness, rooted in Baptism, and further diversified according to the various charisms and vocations in the Church, as a background to a more coherent vision of the theological and ethical dimensions of Christian existence.
  • Il lavoro della Facoltà si struttura in base ad un Istituto di Liturgia e a cinque Specializzazioni:  Teologia dogmatica, Teologia morale, Teologia spirituale, Teologia biblica e Storia della Chiesa.


In evidenza

Monday, March 26, 2018 (3:00 pm, Aula Benedict XVI), on the initiative of the Group "Relational Ontology Research" (ROR), will be held the Day of Study on "The charisms for the world, live fire in history".

Speechs by prof. Luigino Bruni (Lumsa), prof. Salvatore Martinez (National President of the Renewal of the Spirit) and prof. Giulio Maspero (Santa Croce).


From March 12 to 15, 2018, Prof. Scott Hahn had an intensive course (in English) about the relationship between the Old and New Testaments.

This course explores the OT-NT relationship by studying select biblical texts and theological themes (covenant-promise, grace-law, kingdom-church). We consider some influential interpretive approaches (promise-fulfillment, continuity-discontinuity, economy-typology), before examining key familial features of “covenant” (life, law, liturgy), the development of which we trace through the successive divine covenants in salvation history.

57% of the university students completed the quality questionnaire (“Evaluation of Courses”) concerning the subjects of the first semester of the academic year 2017-18. In total, 165 courses were evaluated: 91 of Theology, 29 of Philosophy, 26 of Communication, 14 of Canon Law and 5 of the Department of Languages. Courses that did not reach a minimum percentage of responses were not taken into consideration. The number of the filled questionnaires reaches almost 2,400.

In communicating the information, Prof. Rafael Martínez, Academic Vice-Rector, thanked the students for this concrete collaboration, which represent “an important help to contribute to the improvement our teaching activity”.

The questionnaire which is compiled “online” in an anonymous form, consists of ten questions in its current version to which an evaluation ranging from 1 to 5 is reserved.

Wednesday, February 28, 2018 (8:45 am, Aula Alvaro del Portillo) took place the Day of Study organized by the Institute of Liturgy, entitled Rileggere Romano Guardini nel XXI secolo, on the occasion of the centenary of the publication of "Lo Spirito della Liturgia" (1918- 2018).

Giornata di studio dedicata a Romano Guardini
