Resources & Research


In the 1960s, Pope Paul VI along with Protestant and Orthodox scholars envisioned an institute that would be designed for scholars to live in residence and to pursue their individual research in a community setting. Today at Tantur, we can provide a home and community for those wishing to undertake individual, self-directed study and research in the Holy Land. 

Where you think it may support your work, you are also welcome to participate in our community life and, when possible, meet with other scholars in colloquia to discuss each other's work.

Here, in this sanctuary set next
to the Hebron road,
not far from Jerusalem
or Bethlehem, two places beloved
by three faiths, I sit and reflect.
