Community home page
In line with its long tradition as a Faculty within the University, it pursues higher studies of the foundational texts and the development of Christianity in relation to other religions and world views, especially those that have flourished around the Mediterranean, and collaborates with other Faculties and Institutes of the University in such fields as those of Mediterranean studies and professional ethics.
As a Faculty of Theology enjoying canonical recognition, it seeks to help in the continuing renewal of the Church and its presence in society through the appraisal and interpretation of the Christian tradition, including Church structures, in accordance with the relevant ecclesial criteria for theological studies and research; it also provides appropriate courses of studies for Church ministry and other related work.
It believes that it can give a crucial contribution to human well-being on the individual and collective planes by the presentation of religion, particularly Christianity, as a unifying and constructive force in society and by the promotion of an ethics of solidarity and peace.
