Short description of the Institution:

Faculty of Theology is one of the five founding faculties of the University of Ljubljana (1919). In 1952 the Faculty of Theology was excluded from the University by the government. After fifty Years, on November, 18, 1992 it was reintegrated into the University of Ljubljana.

Based on the Holy Bible and Tradition and taking into consideration the whole range of human thought, the Faculty wishes to enable its students to reflect clearly on the topics of transcendence and present day life, on faith and revelation, on Canon law, morals and education. As a Catholic faculty, faithful to the culture in which it came to birth, the Faculty follows the Church’s magisterium and provides an intellectual preparation for candidates for the priesthood, for lay men and women collaborators in the Church and in the wider society.

Since 1921, with a several year interruption after World War II, the Faculty of Theology has published a journal Bogoslovni vestnik (Theological Quarterly).

In the academic year 1993/94 a two-subject study program was introduced; in Ljubljana in connection with the Faculty of Arts and in Maribor with the Faculty of Education.
