The Philosophical-Theological College at the Seminary in Brixen/Bressanone dates back to the reorganisation of theological studies by the Council of Trent (1545-1563). In 1607 the seminary was founded, and in 1764-1772 it received a new building with a large library and seminary church. In the course of time, several renovations and extensions took place. The last extension with rooms for library, college and church music school was built in 1988-1990.
