It is located prominently on via Petrarca in the Posillipo section of the city. In its present form, the school has existed since 1969; it was a fusion of two pre-existing university religious departments: The Neapolitan Theology Department of the University of Naples (Italian: Facoltà Teologica Napoletana) and the San Luigi Theology College (Italian: Facoltà Teologica San Luigi) run by the Jesuits. In addition, other religious institutions in southern Italy are now affiliated, including the Theological Institute of Calabria (Italian: Istituto Teologico Calabro) and the Theological Institute of Puglia (Italian: Istituto Teologico Pugliese). The institute confers higher degrees in ecclesiastical studies and is in full communion with the Holy See.
