The Catholic University of Korea traces its roots to the introduction of Catholicism in Korea. Catholicism was first introduced to Korea in the latter half of the 18th century when Silhak(Practical Learning) scholars of the late Joseon dynasty began to study the new religion from Catholic books. They formed a Catholic community of faith devoted to recruitment and education. Established in 1855 in Baeron, Jechon, Chungcheongbuk-do, St. Josephs Seminary was the first occidental-style educational institution in Korea that, in the spirit of spreading human dignity, taught Chinese literature, Latin, philosophy, and theology. St. Josephs Seminary was the birthplace of the Catholic University of Korea with a rich history in theology studies.
