School of Theology

Teologia

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.

On the occasion of the Feast of the Patron Saint Thomas Aquinas, students of the School of Theology, on January 16, 2019, made a pilgrimage to the Abbey of Montecassino, one of the oldest monastery in Italy, founded in 529 by San Benedetto da Norcia.

"To live Christmas is to be shaken by its surprising novelty: Christmas of Jesus does not offer reassuring warmth of fireplace, but the divine shiver that shakes history. Christmas is the revenge of humility over arrogance, simplicity over abundance, silence on the noise, of prayer on 'my time', of God on my".
(Pope Francis, General Audience, Decembre, 19, 2018)

The Rector and the academic community of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross formulate wishes for a Holy Christmas and a Happy New Year 2019.

At the first floor of the Palazzo dell'Apollinare, the Santa Croce Projects exhibition has been set up, presenting several Centers and Projects of research and teaching initiatives active in our University.

The exhibition aims to promote, first of all, the knowledge of these initiatives. In some cases, moreover, this information will inspire new collaborations, studies, research, proposals for doctoral theses and licenses.
