Salesian Pontifical University

Faculty of Theology – Jerusalem Campus

Studium Theologicum Salesianum

 

          As the Jerusalem Campus of the Faculty of Theology of the Salesian Pontifical University, the STS was erected by decree of the Congregation for Catholic Education on 2nd February 2011. It has inherited the legacy of the Study Centre initially located in Bethlehem (1929), then transferred to Tantur (1949) and Cremisan (1957), and lately moved to the premises of the “Salesian Monastery Ratisbonne” in Jerusalem (2004).
          The goal of the STS, as a Faculty of Theology, 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 priest-hood. 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.
          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 inter-religious formation. In that way, two Diplomas are also offered: Diploma in Interreligious Dialogue and Ecumenism, and Diploma in Biblical Geography and History.
          The arrangement of studies at the STS is governed by the principles and norms issued by the Holy See, by the Salesian Pontifical University, and by the Salesian Congregation. The Rector Major, as the Chancellor of the Salesian Pontifical University, is the ultimate authority of the STS.
          In academic activities the medium of communication is English.
