Presentation

In the 21st century, far from having detached us from the past, the memory of what we were is one of the most burning battlefields.

We are what we remember, what we tell ourselves we were and what our ancestors died for. Thousands of years ago, people in the Middle East decided to put in writing, for the first time in history, the questions that do not expire.

This is how the Bible was born. These universal texts have had a decisive influence on the way we live, how we think, and how we hope and survive not only in religious traditions that accept them as sacred texts but, above all, in paintings, literature, films, music, ideas, etc., which are part of the universal culture and heritage....

In 1996, the Standing Committee of the Bishops of the Congo approved a new organization of studies at the Faculty of Theology, which came into force in October of the same year.

Without abandoning this double concern, the Standing Committee of Bishops reaffirms that the Church needs the lay people trained in theology, and stresses that the formation of the latter must be the same as for the priests (except, of course, the Matters connected with the priestly ministry). There will be no special program either for the laity or for the priests. For all, he will be the same at all levels: Graduate, License, Diploma of Approfondies (DEA), Doctorate.... [-]
