Courses on Christian Religion





For many years, the Didaskaleion Center of Torino has offered - for free - a structured and rigorous packet of courses meant to deepen one’s knowledge of Christian Religion. The didactical offer encompasses both genuinely theological subjects and cultural and historical approaches.


The school’s methodology was devised and developed by Rev. Piero Ottaviano during the course of his whole life, and it’s still scrupulously followed by the teachers he himself formed. Over the years, the Center’s courses have been appreciated by more than 35000 students.


Below, we list the various didactical proposals, along with the time tables of fruition. All courses are held in Italian tongue.



1. Christianity – Synthesis (two years)

This course is a deep and rigorous study of Christian Religion, re-analyzed "from scratch".
It’s meant for students whose minimum age is 16, be them Christians or not, which desire to “see clearly” through Christian Religion and eventually chose whether to accept it and live it, or not.

This “basic” course is capital, and propedeutic for any other course of the Center.

Duration: 2 years (attended once per week):

  • the first year sets the basis of Christian Faith, dealing - with the support of documents - the Founding of Christianity, the Act of Faith, Christian life, the Sacraments;

  • the second year provides a complete overview of any other aspect of Christian faith: christology, Trinity, Creation, the "problem of evil", anthropology, escatology (difficult names for not-so-difficult concepts!).



  • afternoon (reduced): on friday, every two weeks, from 3.30 p.m. to 5.30 p.m., at UNITRE, Corso Trento 13, Torino - 0039.347.742.89.00, starting from November 6th, 2015.
  • evening (complete): to be defined, provided enough participants are enrolled. For inscriptions, please contact Didaskaleion.

    SECOND YEAR, is open only to those peole who attended the first year, and will be scheduled in the near future, provided enough participants are enrolled.For inscriptions, please contact Didaskaleion.


    PLEASE NOTE: This biennal course is fundamental and necessary to get access to any other courses of Didaskleion Center.
