Sanyasa (ICL)

The Institute of Consecrated Life

The Institute is named Sanyasa because this word seems to be the closest equivalent of Consecrated life in the Indian traditions. But the Institute should not be misunderstood as an Ashram for those searching for a time of prayer, meditation and solitude. Contextualizing religious life in the Asian setting, Sanyasa offers an academic program for deepening the understanding of the consecrated form of life in the Church, especially in the light of the Scripture, Magisterium, tradition and various theological interpretations with the scope of reviving and empowering the consecrated persons.

Theological Institute of Religious Life

The Theological Institute of Religious Life is a higher center of research and teaching, founded by the Claretian Missionaries in 1971. It is a section of the Faculty of Theology of the Pontifical University of Salamanca (Madrid Campus). Since its foundation, it carries out a rigorous study on:
1) the biblical inspiration of consecrated life;
2) the history of its forms;
3) the theological-systematic nuclei of its mission and charismatic identity in the context of other forms of life and ministries in the Church; 4) the practical and existential aspects of consecrated life;
4) the practical and existential aspects that characterize it in this time of change and interrelation.

The Theological Institute accompanies the process of renewal and adaptation of consecrated life from the permanent reference to the ecclesiology of communion and mission, to interfaith, interreligious and intercultural dialogue and to the option for the poor and excluded. It offers an inclusive and catholic vision of reality, always attentive to the emerging challenges and the globality of consecrated life in different continents and contexts.
