The Dominican Studium for the Irish Dominicans was established in St. Mary’s Priory in Tallaght in 1935 and transferred to St. Saviour’s in 2000. Over time it has contributed many notable theologians and writers to the Church. Since its beginnings, the Irish Dominican Studium has granted degrees accredited by the Angelicum University in Rome, one of the most prestigious Catholic universities in the Church.
