Latin Patriarchal Seminary of Jerusalem

Latin Patriarchate Seminary of Jerusalem

 

            Opened in Jerusalem in December 1852 by Patriarch Valerga, the seminary was transferred to Beit Jala on September 7, 1857.  Because of circumstances, it returned several times to Jerusalem, though its principal base of operations has been Beit Jala where it was permanently established on July 7, 1936.

            Directed at first by priests of the Patriarchate, it was entrusted to the Benedictines of Dormition Abbey in October 1921 and to the Priests of the Sacred Heart of Betharram in October 1932.  Since July 1980, it is once again under the direction of the priests of the Patriarchate.  The Sisters of Saint Charles Borromeo serviced the seminary from 1921 to 1929 and the Sisters of Saint Dorothy of Vicenza from 1929-2008, replaced by the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy (Mercedarians) from 2008 – 2013, and now by the Servants of the Lord and of Our Lady of Matara.   

            The curriculum comprises an introductory year of spirituality, a year to master the French language, and two years of philosophy, followed by three years of theology, plus a year of pastoral experience in the parishes before the diaconate.  The curriculum in theology was affiliated with the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome on May 3, 1967. This affiliation enables the students to receive, at the end of the program, the degree of Bachelor of Theology.

            The academic and formation programs are based on the Ratio Fundamentalis, the Apostolic Exhortation Pastores Dabo Vobis, the Ordo of the Pontifical Lateran University, and the Ratio Studiorum of the seminary which was updated in 1990 and published in the General Academic Calendar. Courses are taught in Arabic, French, and occasionally English.

            Founded mainly to train local clergy, the seminary has traditionally been and remains open to students from other institutions and countries who wish to prepare themselves, on site, for the service of the Church in the Holy Land.  Since its opening in 1852 until the end of the 2012-2013 academic year, 272 former seminarians have been ordained priests, 14 of them have become bishops, three of them patriarchs.

Bat Kol Institute

            Associated with the Sisters of Sion, Bat Kol is a Catholic association of Christian women and men who are committed to study the Word of God within its Jewish context and to incorporate these studies into their Christian self-understanding.  The inspiration for its founding was Nostra Aetate (#4) which states: “Since Christians and Jews have such a common spiritual heritage, this sacred Council wishes to encourage and further mutual understanding and appreciation. This can be obtained, especially, by way of biblical and theological inquiry and through friendly discussions.”  Bat Kol was founded as an institute where Christians can engage in biblical studies and explore their own historical relationship with the Jewish tradition as a whole.

            Each year Bat Kol Institute sponsors intensive month-long graduate-level courses in Jerusalem, accepted by the Gregorian University and several international universities. In addition, Bat  Kol 

Institute staff supervises several international Bat Kol extension programs.

National Offices for Catholic Schools

 

The Bishops of the Holy Land are directly responsible for organizing Christian education and pastoral ministry in the schools.  To be closer to the diverse realities in which the Catholic schools must operate, the Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries of the Holy Land established three National Offices for Catholic Schools, each one having its own statutes.

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)

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.
