COMMUNICATIONS IN THE AFTERNOON

Presentations of papers will take place in the afternoon at the FACULTAD DE TEOLOGÍA DEL NORTE DE ESPAÑA (FACULTY OF THEOLOGY OF NORTH SPAIN). C/ Eduardo Martínez del Campo 10, 09003, Burgos.

A few metres from Burgos Cathedral and opposite the Archbishop's Palace is the Faculty of Theology, formerly the Seminary of San Jerónimo. The building was constructed in 1861 by the architect Luis de Villanueva, who used the classic superimposition of brick bodies on a lower stone base. He used an academicist style in its construction. This building became one of the most important architectural landmarks of the nascent street that was emerging as a result of the demolition of the walls (now Calle Eduardo Martínez del Campo). Inside, the chapel, which was built in an eclectic style, stands out. Although most of the building dates from the 19th century, some remains of the original 17th century construction have been preserved. The rich library housed in this educational centre, which is the result of bringing together multiple libraries from disentailed monasteries, is particularly noteworthy, with important incunabula and editions from the 16th century. In this building we can also find the Diocesan Archive, which has modern facilities for the conservation of documents from the different parishes of the diocese of Burgos.
