School of Theology

Teologia

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.

On October 5, 2020, the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross will hopefully begin lessons for the new academic year in presential mode. This reopening will respect and follow the indications of the Health Authorities.

The level of normality will depend on the evolution of COVID 19 and - in an institution with a strong international presence - on the situation in the students' countries of origin.

At the moment, with the data currently available, the University is preparing some measures and investments to start the 2020/2021 courses without delays or uncertainties.

These measures include:

1. The maintenance of the entire academic courses and the general distribution of timetables;

2. The University will try to ensure that any delays in the ability to attend courses (for reasons related to the pandemic) do not have a negative academic impact on the student;

It is already possible to apply for admission to the different study cycles of the Schools of Theology, Canon Law, Philosophy and Church Communications for the Academic Year 2020/21. The necessary form can be requested by writing to santacroce [at] pusc.it, which can be filled in and returned by email attaching the appropriate documents, as indicated on this page.

On Thursday, June 25, 2020, the Panel "New Trinitarian Ontologies" was streamed, as part of the EuARe2020 conference of the European Academy of Religion, organized by prof. Giulio Maspero, of the School of Theology.

John Milbank (University of Nottingham), Luigino Bruni (LUMSA) and Eduard Fielder (Masaryk University) also spoke, moderated by Ryan Haecker (University of Cambridge).

The streaming can be reviewed at this address.
