The majority of the books of the STS library came from the Salesian Study Center of Cremisan in 2004. This center started its academic activities in the beginning of the Twentieth century and has offered studies mainly in Italian.
After the transfer of the Salesian Study Center to Jerusalem and foundation of Studium Thelogicum Salesianum the language of studies became English. This change has influenced strongly the criteria for acquisition of new books.
