Pontifical Biblical Institute: Studying the Bible for 100 Years
On one of Rome's quieter, less traveled streets the world's only institution dedicated solely to Biblical studies houses over 200,000 volumes. It was founded by Pius X 100 years ago. Jose Maria Abrego, Rector of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, says: "One hundred years for an academic institution is nothing. But it does allow it to claim a certain experience and try to look toward the future and toward the service it can develop in the future with a base."
