About us

The Faculty of Theology Section in Tarnów (WTST) of the Pontifical University of John Paul II in Cracow was established formally as a result of transformation of the Institute of Theology in Tarnów. This Institute was founded in 1822 for educating the clergy serving Tarnów diocese and its activities were always strongly connected to the Seminary in Tarnów. During the time of communists control over Poland, the Institute existed only formally, but in fact, it was always identified with the Seminary in Tarnów. In 1993 bishop professor Józef Życiński, who was at that time the bishop of Tarnów diocese, transformed the Institute of Theology into the Theology and Pastoral Institute and strongly contributed to its aggregation to the Theology Faculty of the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Cracow. Thanks to efforts of bishop doctor Wiktor Skworc in 2004, the Sacred Congregation of the Catholic Education established the Faculty of Theology Section in Tarnów (WTST) of the Pontifical University of John Paul II in Cracow. According to its ecclesial tradition the Faculty of Theology enjoying canonical recognition helps 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.
