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).
