|Valladolid - Spain
The Augustinian Center of Theological Studies of Valladolid, which is based at the Royal College Seminary of the Augustinians of Valladolid (Spain) was joined to the Theological Faculty of the Pontifical University Comillas of Madrid as an Affiliated Study Center from 1967 to 2005, and to the Faculty of Theology of Burgos from 2006 until 2012. Late last year, the Congregation for Catholic Education erected it as an Aggregated Center to the Theological Faculty of Northern Spain at Burgos, so it can provide the two-year Licentiate Degree in Fundamental Theology.
Guiding this new project as an Aggregated Center is the Order of St. Augustine as the titular body. The Board was established on February 28 of this year and is composed of Fr. Robert F. Prevost, Prior General of the Order, as President, his Excellency D. Ricardo Blazquez, Archbishop of Valladolid, as Senior Vice President, Fr. Carlos Morán, Prior Provincial of the Province of the Philippines, as Second Vice President and Secretary, and the Priors Provincial Fr. Isidro de la Viuda (Castillan Province), Fr. Agustín Alcalde (Province of Spain) and Fr. Miguel Ángel Orcasitas (Madrid Province).
