Study Theology by Distance Learning

The Priory Institute is an accredited centre for theological, biblical and philosophical studies, operated by the Irish Province of the Dominican Order. We offer a range of academic courses by distance learning. The distance learning approach is particularly suitable for those who cannot attend classes regularly. The Institute is part of the Dominican tradition, with nearly 800 years of theology behind it. It is Catholic and ecumenical in its approach. It seeks to engage with the best rational thinking of our times and brings the insights of different philosophical and religious thinkers to bear on the study of theology.

Here at the Priory Institute we think it is worthwhile to stand back and reflect on why we are here and how we should lead our lives. From the perspective of belief in God, our courses address the whys, hows and wherefores of human existence.
