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.
