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

Wednesday, December 13, 2023 (at 3:30 PM, aula minor Álvaro del Portilllo), the School of Theology organized an Afternoon of Theological, Spiritual, and Artistic Exploration titled 800 years since the first nativity scene (1223-2023).

On Friday, December 1, 2023, (at 11:30 AM in the Benedetto XVI Hall), the book Legge e Libertà, published by Edusc and written by Romano Penna, emeritus professor of New Testament in various faculties of theology, was presented. The book, as stated on the back cover, offers a biblical-theological itinerary that allows the reader to grasp the central aspects of the law-freedom dialectic and to focus on the peculiarity of the Christian message.

In addition to the author, Eric Noffke from the Waldensian School of Theology and professors Carlos Jódar, Giuseppe De Virgilio, and Eusebio González from our University's School of Theology participated.

On this occasion, the editorial project of a new biblical series by Edizioni Santa Croce was introduced.

November 13, 2023 (at 3:30 PM, Aula Benedict XVI), on the occasion of the publication of the seventh volume of the ROR Studies Series, titled "Authority and Mediation. Asymmetric Relationships in the Church" (edited by I. Vigorelli, J. Pujol, and F. Insa), the workshop on the theme "Authority in the Church: Service and Abuses" took place.

The event was organized not only by the ROR Group but also by the Center for Priestly Formation and the School of Church Communication.

Speakers included Monsignor Andrea Ripa from the Apostolic Signatura Tribunal, sociologist Cecilia Costa, theologian Gill Goulding, and Jordi Pujol, professor of Ethics and Law of Communication.

Starting from October 10, 2023, on the initiative of the Department of Church History of the School of Theology, a new edition of the Permanent Seminar on Church History will take place. The theme for this year will focus on the History of Evangelization in the Modern and Contemporary Era.

Participation is open to both students and faculty. The six sessions will be held on Tuesday afternoons (at 3:00 PM in room A207). It is possible to earn 3 CFU (university credits).
