The Pontifical University of Salamanca (in Spanish: Universidad Pontificia de Salamanca) is a private, catholic university, located in Salamanca, Spain, and campus in Salamanca and Madrid.


Resulting from the resolution of the Spanish government dissolving of the faculties of Theology and Canon Law at the University of Salamanca in 1854,[1] Pope Pius XII decided to establish a new pontifical university and restore those faculties in the new institution. Additional faculties and schools were added over the years.

Olegario González de Cardedal, who received the Ratzinger Prize in 2011, teaches Dogmatic and Fundamental Theology.
