The Cardinal Bea Centre of the Gregorian University - taking its name and inspiration from the far-seeing vision of the Jesuit Augustin Bea, the principal architect of the Declaration Nostra Aetate - is dedicated to the promotion of a theological knowledge and understanding of Judaism - from both a Jewish and a Christian perspective - as well as the teaching, research and academic exchanges between Christians and Jews, in order to foster a mutually enriching relationship.
