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.

During the second semester, The Most Reverend Msgr. Massimo Camisasca, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Reggio Emilia-Guastalla and former founder and superior of the Fraternity of St. Charles (born from the charism of the Communion and Liberation Movement), will teach a course in the Faculty of Theology on Fr. Luigi Giussani: "His Experience of Mankind and Christ"

The course will consist of two parts. The first shorter part will have a primarily historical focus, addressing crucial moments for Italy and Europe in the second half of the 20th century.

The second more extensive part will have a primarily theological and pedagogical focus, analyzing the most important writings of the Founder of Communion and Liberation.

Organized by the Schools of Canon Law and Theology, the ​Study Week​ ​on Spiritual Accompaniment in Movements and New Communities ("Aiding human and supernatural growth") took place from 30 January to 3 February 2023.

The activity was aimed at members of ecclesial movements and new communities involved in the spiritual accompaniment of the faithful, to reflect on the possibilities, challenges and issues related to it, in general and specifically within these ecclesial realities.
