The Pope cites the Augustinianum

On the occasion of the 16th anniversary of the death of Saint Jerome, Pope Francis has published the Apostolic Letter Scripturae Sacrae Affectus. The Pope describes the life and work of this Father and Doctor of the Church and recalls not only the keys to understanding Saint Jerome, but also proposes him as an example and guide for today's scholars. Francis also honors our Order with an explicit mention to the Patristic Institute of Rome: “Centres of excellence for biblical research – such as the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome, and the École Biblique and the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum in Jerusalem – and for patristic research, like the Augustinianum in Rome, certainly serve this purpose, but every Faculty of Theology should strive to ensure that the teaching of sacred Scripture is carried out in such a way that students are provided with necessary training in interpretative skills, both in the exegesis of texts and in biblical theology as a whole.”
