Chiesa Pontifical Romanian College (Collegio Pio Romeno), Rome

It is also called Collegio Ruteno; was built under Pius XI. Here the Catholic priests from all over the world are prepared for missionary work. Originally the College was located in Palazzo di Propaganda Fide on Piazza di Spagna. Its church (pictured) stands right on the street Passeggiata del Gianicolo.

The Pontifical Gregorian University was born out of the free classes given at a 'Collegio Romano' started by Saint Ignatius of Loyola in 1551. It offers degrees in ecclesiastical, religious and human sciences: Theology, Canon Law, Church History, Philosophy, Psychology, Social Sciences, etc. It is located at the Basilica of St. John Lateran. Its teachings are based on the Roman Pontifical.

The Roman Seminary/ Pontifical Romanian College [(Pontificio Collegio Romano (“Pio Romeno”)] is the diocesan seminary (A seminary, theological college, or divinity school is an institution of higher education for educating students (sometimes called seminarians) in theology, generally to prepare them for ordination as clergy or for other ministry) of Rome. The Council of Trent in its 23rd session decreed the establishment of diocesan seminaries. Pope Pius IV decided to set a good example, and on 1 February 1565, the Roman Seminary was solemnly opened with 60 students. The rules were drawn up by Diego Lainez, General of the Society of Jesus, and to this order Pius IV entrusted the management of the college.

Up to 1773 the students attended the lectures in the Collage Romano; the residence was changed several times before 1608, when they settled in the Palazzo Borromeo in the Via del Seminario (now the Gregorian University). A country seat was erected for the students in a portion of the baths of Caracalla. Each year, at Pentecost, a student delivered a discourse on the Holy Ghost in the papal chapel.
