Abstract: Straipsniu siekiama parodyti, kad Katalikų teologijos fakultetas Vytauto Didžiojo universitete yra ne tik Lietuvos intelektualų, bet ir dvasingesnio gyvenimo siekiančių Europos šalių traukos centras . Tai atskleidžia, pirma, Katalikų teologijos fakulteto Vytauto Didžiojo universitete istoriografijos, studijų bei mokslo programų apžvalga; antra, šios medžiagos bei Europos Sąjungos Bolonijos sutarties priimtinumas mokslo ir Bažnyčios specialistų vertinimu. Tyrimo rezultatai pagrindžia darbe iškeliamą hipotezę, kad VDU Katalikų teologijos fakultetas, veikiantis valstybiniame universitete, yra gražaus bendradarbiavimo tarp Bažnyčios ir valstybės pavyzdys kitoms Europos šalims

On the initiative of the Conference of Lithuanian Bishops and the leaders of Vytautas Magnus university and with the approval of Vatican Congregation of Catholic studies, it has become an academic part of Vytautas Magnus university, where priests, seminarians, monks , nuns and lay people are able to study; 2. Ecumenic contacts are treated with special attention, because it is impossible for some Christians to feel themselves as children of God and others to be like orphans; 3. With the entering to European Union, intellectual perspectives have become much wider, that is why Christian faith needs to have a very firm backround – the teaching of Jesus Christ; 4. University is the fountain of humanism, intelligence and erudition; it may become only the Babel of pride without the knowledge of God and communication with him; 5. Nowadays the world has become very small because of new scientific technologies; together with material and educational progress, spiritual life should also proceed. Polarization of mankind, rejection of Christianity, polytheism – that is the circle, directing to eschtological termination. [...]
