Peremyshl Greek Catholic Theological Seminary
Peremyshl Greek Catholic Theological Seminary (Перемиська греко-католицька духовна семінарія; Peremyska hreko-katolytska dukhovna seminariia). The training center for priests in Peremyshl eparchy. After a brief existence in 1780–3, the seminary was closed by Joseph II, and theology students forced once again to go to Lviv to study. It was partially reopened in 1845 to accommodate theology students completing their fourth year of study. Only in 1921–39 and 1942–4 was the seminary in Peremyshl again fully operational. During this time a fifth year of study was added to the curriculum; the student enrollment grew to over 150, and the staff to 12 (1937); and the students organized religious societies, a co-operative, and an academic society, which in 1937 published a jubilee almanac for theology students in the eparchy. For the last decade of the seminary's existence, I. Kuzych served as rector, and V. Holynsky as assistant rector.
