The Dominican Province of Ireland founded the DBI in 2000 to engage in advanced biblical research, training and teaching.
The goals of the Dominican Biblical Institute include:
- to advance biblical research
- to bring fresh energy to applying the Bible to daily life (lectio divina), thereby bringing biblical research to street level
The Dominican Biblical Institute offers classes for lay people, occasional lectures and collegiate modules throughout the year. The ultimate focus of the DBI is pastoral, engaging with surrounding communities: schools and colleges, church groups and the general public. The current director of the DBI is Fr Gerard J. Norton, OP.
The Diploma in Biblical and Theological Studies is a level 6 course, accredited by the St. Patrick's College, Maynooth. The 30th May 2012 saw successful students being awarded diplomas by Maynooth at a Graduation Ceremony.
