The École Biblique offers particularly attractive benefits for scholars who decide to stay at the École: above all, one of the best-furnished biblical and archaeological libraries in the world, available 24/7, allowing you to work according to your own rhythm. Your suggestions for new acquisitions are also always most welcome.

Our guest researchers are usually bible and Qumran scholars, archaeologists, and historians. Shared meals are a regular occasion for academic exchanges and networking with peers and colleagues from related disciplines, be they members of the École or other guests. Public lectures and conferences hosted by the École biblique or by other academic institutions in Jerusalem (Hebrew University, Albright Institute, etc.) are additionally a great opportunity to make broaden one’s perspective.

Our guests are also most welcome to participate in the liturgies of the Dominican priory of St. Stephen in our beautiful basilica.
