Scotland’s bishops to reopen seminary

Catholic World News - June 24, 2014

The bishops of Scotland have announced that the Royal Scots College in Spain will again be used as a seminary.

Founded in 1629, the college prepared men for the priesthood until 2009.

“The Royal Scots College in Salamanca, Spain, will once again be used for the formation of candidates for the priesthood in Scotland, its historic purpose for the last four centuries,” Archbishop Philip Tartaglia of Glasgow, the president of the episcopal conference, said in a statement.

“It is envisaged that from January 2016, candidates for the priesthood will follow a six-month propaeduetic period in our Salamanca college before going on to Rome for studies in philosophy and theology,” he added. “The bishops of Scotland are very pleased to be able to announce that we are reopening a seminary.”
