After his 1964 pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the Vatican purchased Tantur (Arabic for "hilltop"), then leased it to the University of Notre Dame (USA) for fifty years. Tantur welcomes scholars and students to pursue their research and writing for longer or shorter periods, and offers programs of continuing education and spiritual renewal for parish clergy, teachers and other church workers.
