Tilburg School of Catholic Theology
TST's motto is "Thinking Faith". Faith and religion are no longer as widespread in our society as they were, but remain relevant social factors. On an individual level, spirituality and faith are still vitally important to many, and faith and religion continue inspire and comfort people.
The study of theology is broad and profound and includes both personal and academic formation.
Third lustrum / Fifteenth Anniversary Tilburg School of Catholic Theology
In 2007, the Tilburg and Utrecht schools of theology merged to form a single School of Tilburg University. TST may be Tilburg University’s most recently created School, but theology has deep roots in the academy. As one of the oldest disciplines, theology stood at the origins of the university tradition, and rectors of Tilburg University such as Thomas Goossens and Frans Weve were heirs to both the critical-academic tradition and their Christian heritage.

Words need not be weapons; democratic decisions can be made together26th September 2022
Retorica and ad hominem arguments play a major role in the House of Representatives, and in the modern media that have become an increasingly important political factor. However, we can also choose other sources of inspiration to reach decisions with each other, for example rabbis, Jesus, and the Germanic people, argues outgoing theologian Professor Bart Koet on Sept. 23.
Society thinks in solving problems, instead of looking for harmony and the good life07th September 2022
Following Francis' work, according to theologian Prof. Willem Marie Speelman, we need to think much more about restoring the house of our society and this earth. And we can do that by focusing on the mystery behind the problems of our time and accepting and learning to appreciate them. Then we can think about what harmonious life could look like. This is what Speelman will be delivering his inaugural speech on September 9.
