Bethlehem University

 

            Bethlehem University was founded in order to provide the Christian community in the Holy Land with the opportunity to acquire a higher education.
In the spring of 1973, the hierarchy and those responsible for education in the diocese suggested the creation of a university at the College run by the Christian Brothers (Collège des Frères) in Bethlehem. The proposal was accepted.  Under the direction of three American Brothers, the University opened its doors on October 1, 1973.

Salesian Pontifical University

Faculty of Theology – Jerusalem Campus

Studium Theologicum Salesianum

 

The Jerusalem Campus of the Faculty of Theology (Studium Theologicum Salesianum: STS) of the Salesian Pontifical University has been erected by decree of the Congregation for Catholic Education on 2nd February 2011.

The Jerusalem Campus has inherited the legacy of the Studium Theologicum Salesianum, originally founded in Bethlehem in 1929. It was transferred to Tantur in 1949, then to Cremisan, near Beit Jala, in 1957.  Since 1973, it has been affiliated with the Theological Faculty of the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome. In September 2004, the students and the academic staff moved to the former Ratisbonne Monastery in Jerusalem, under the patronage of Saints Peter and Paul.

The goal of the STS is to promote the study of and a deeper understanding of the mystery of Christ, as proposed by divine revelation and as interpreted by the teaching authority of the Church. The STS aims particularly at the theological formation of Salesian candidates to the priesthood. It is also open to students from other religious congregations, to diocesan students and to lay students. The students ordinarily conclude their studies with the Bachelor’s degree in theology. Guest students are allowed to choose individual courses of their choice.

Two Pontifical Diplomas are offered: 1) Diploma in Biblical Geography and History; 2) Diploma in Interreligious Dialogue and Ecumenism.

Given its privileged location in the Holy Land, the STS aims especially at highlighting a biblical formation by offering appropriate means to achieve this end. In addition, thanks to the ethnic and cultural richness of the Holy Land, it offers the students the possibility of achieving a desirable and necessary ecumenical and interreligious formation.

The STS, being the Jerusalem Campus of the Faculty of Theology of the Salesian Pontifical University in Rome is governed by the principles and norms issued by the Holy See, by the Salesian Congregation and by the Salesian Pontifical University.

In academic activities the medium of communication is English.

Tantur Ecumenical Institute for Theological Studies

Tantur Ecumenical Institute for Theological Studies

 

     After his pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1964, Pope Paul VI created an Ecumenical Institute for Theological Research in Jerusalem to foster a better understanding between Catholics, Orthodox, Anglicans and Protestants. The Institute is under the jurisdiction of the Apostolic Delegate in Jerusalem and operates in collaboration with the University of Notre Dame in the United States.
           Located between Jerusalem and Bethlehem, the Institute welcomes Christians of all denominations: scholars, members of the clergy, religion teachers, men and women, married and single, most of whom receive financial help from their respective institutions. A certain number of students receive scholarships from the Institute itself. Several programs are available, among them a Scholars’ Program which affords students the opportunity to pursue research in a residential community of learning. The Institute also has five continuing education sabbatical programs during the year, collaborates with various church and university groups on educational tours of the Holy Land, and can host conferences.

The various programs are pursued according to the aims of the Institute which are:
            – To assist the search for Christian unity and interchurch harmony among diverse Christian communions.
            – To explore the relationship between Christians and peoples of other world faiths, especially Jews and Muslims.
            – To participate in the search for world peace and justice, through theological study and by exploring human rights and conflict resolution in different religious and social contexts.

Studium Biblicum Franciscanum (SBF) Facultas Scientiarum Biblicarum et Archaeologiae Faculty of Biblical Sciences and Archaeology

Studium Biblicum Franciscanum (SBF)

Facultas Scientiarum Biblicarum et Archaeologiae
Faculty of Biblical Sciences and Archaeology

The Studium Biblicum Franciscanum was established in 1924 by Father F. Diotallevi, Custos of the Holy Land, as the Order’s center for biblical studies in Jerusalem. The Monastery of the Flagellation in Jerusalem was chosen as the Studium’s base of operation and was adapted to its new purpose. A specialized library was built up, and a Palestinian archaeological museum was created. In 1927 by decision of the Minister General of the Order of Friars Minor (OFM), the SBF became an integral part of the study program of the Antonianum College in Rome for courses in Holy Scripture. In 1933 the first archaeological campaign on Mount Nebo (Jordan) was conducted.         

                On June 14, 1960, the Studium was recognized as the biblical department of the Pontificium Athenaeum Antonianum, and on March 15, 1982, the Congregation for Catholic Education erected it as the parallel branch of the Faculty of Theology of the same Athenaeum.  On September 4, 2001, the  Congregation elevated it to the rank of Faculty of Biblical Sciences and Archaeology.  Since January 11, 2005, the Pontificium Athenaeum Antonianum has the title of Pontifical “Antonianum” University.

          In addition to its degree programs leading to both the licentiate (S.S.L.) and the doctorate (S.S.D.), the Studium offers courses leading to specialized diplomas in Oriental Biblical Studies and Archaeology and in Biblical Formation.  It also offers, on a yearly basis, a week of theological biblical study and periodically, a program of continuing education for those who serve as spiritual guides to pilgrims.

            Associated with the SBF is the Custody of the Holy Land’s School of Theology, the Studium Theologicum Jerosolymitanum (STJ).

Pontifical Biblical Institute (PBI)

When the Pontifical Biblical Institute was founded in Rome in 1909, a branch in the Holy Land was already being considered. Father Alexis Mallon, S.J. came to Jerusalem in 1913 to set up such a branch but was prevented from doing so because of the War of 1914-18.  He returned in 1919.  The cornerstone of the building was laid in October 1925 and the inauguration took place in July 1927.

     From 1927 to 1938, a few students from the Biblicum in Rome came to Jerusalem each year during the last semester of their studies. Beginning in 1952, the Jerusalem branch opened its doors to other biblical students.  Courses in the biblical languages were organized from 1969 to 1972 for students preparing to attend the Biblicum in Rome.

     Since 1975, a program of seven months is offered by Hebrew University of Jerusalem to students of the Biblicum who have completed in Rome the introductory course in biblical Greek and Hebrew.  This program aims at deepening their knowledge of Hebrew and of the history, geography and archaeology of the land of the Bible.  Since 1986, the Ecole Biblique of Jerusalem receives for one semester other students from the Biblicum in Rome who are halfway through their studies.  In addition to the study of biblical Aramaic, this program includes courses in exegesis.  Finally, since 2000, the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum offers each year in September a course in biblical archaeology to a significant number of students from the Pontifical Biblical Institute.

French Biblical and Archaeological School of Jerusalem
(Ecole Biblique et Archéologique Française)

.

L’Ecole Biblique et Archéologique Française was founded as L’Ecole Pratique d’Etudes Bibliques on November 15, 1890 by Father Marie-Joseph Lagrange, O.P. (1855-1938), within the Dominican Saint Stephen’s Monastery erected in 1884 on the holy place acquired by his confrere, Father Mattieu Lecomte, where once stood the Byzantine monastery containing the basilica built shortly after 431 by Empress Eudocia to commemorate the martyrdom of Saint Stephen. It was the first graduate school for biblical and archaeological studies in the Holy Land.
Conducted by the Dominicans, L’Ecole Biblique was recognized by the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles-Lettres of Paris in 1920, thereby allowing it to complete its name Ecole Biblique with the words et Archéologique Française. In 1983, the Congregation for Catholic Education in Rome granted l’Ecole Biblique the right to confer the degree of Doctor of Biblical Sciences.
