The International Biblical Congress will take place in the city of Rome – the center of Christianity.
It was here that St. Jerome, the great popularizer of the Bible, did his studies and from here that he departed for Jerusalem.
Here in Rome, the Catholic Biblical Federation was founded on April 16, 1969.
Our Congress will be housed at the ERGIFE Palace Hotel, a modern convention center with the capacity for and experience in organizing events of this importance.
