Josep de Ribera , Sant'ignazio scrive le costituzioni

The Institute of Spirituality, founded in 1958, is connected to the Faculty of Theology of the Pontifical Gregorian University, and is a center of reflection and teaching of Spiritual Theology. A discipline in its own right, Spiritual Theology is in dialogue with other theological disciplines, as well as with the social sciences, in order to contribute to theological reflection with its own particular identity, which is characterized by a specific Ignatian way of proceeding.

The principle purpose of the teaching and the structure of the Institute's program delineates on the whole a theological and spiritual synthesis, characterized by a strong sapiential approach and by spiritual discernment, in order to favor and sustain an authentic and profoundly integral formation of those enrolled in the program. In the light of Ignatian spirituality and of its consequent vision and didactic method, such formation aims for the integral maturation of all the intellectual, human and spiritual potentiality of a person.

The objective of the Institute of Spirituality is to enable persons to become authentic and significant witnesses of the Gospel and, at the same time, wise and audacious interlocutors in a serene and constructive dialogue with the contemporary world and with other similar academic institutions, as well as every other religious experience open to transcendence.
