Organization Tantur Ecumenical Institute
History Great Schism of 1054. October 1963 non-Catholic observers at the Second Vatican Council meetings told Pope Paul VI of their desire for an international ecumenical institute for theological and pastoral studies. After the Popes 1964 pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the Vatican purchased land in Jerusalem with the intention of having such an institute established there. The land was leased for 50 years to Notre Dame University in the USA and in 1971 the University opened a spacious institute in Israel.
