“AND SO THE STUDY OF THE SACRED PAGE IS, AS IT WERE, THE SOUL OF SACRED THEOLOGY” (Dei Verbum 24)

As a department of the Faculty of Theology, Biblical Theology is dedicated to the study of Sacred Scripture with particular attention to the one bipartite Bible (Old Testament/Tanach and New Testament). With its faculty composed of tenured professors (see photo) and non-tenured teachers, it offers a program of courses and seminars that deal with biblical themes and texts by means of a vast range of methods and approaches. The department offers two formative courses: the licentiate (second cycle) and the doctorate (third cycle) in Biblical Theology.
