The author in his paper seeks to answer the question contained in the title. In discussing the history of the seminary institution he analyzed the provisions of the most important Church documents, particularly of the Councils: Trent, Vatican II and the Code of Canon Law of 1983. He shows that the seminary is a specific institution, because on the one hand is a scientific facility on the model of the university, on the other hand a formative facility aimed at certain personality traits and attitudes in candidates for the priesthood, which make them qualified to preach the Gospel. Despite the changing circumstances of time and social conditions seminaries continue to fulfill their role. Hence, the Church requires the establishment, as far as possible, such institution, in every diocese and in institute of consecrated life. They provide, necessary theological formation and behavior approprate to characteristics and traditions of a particular Church or institute of consecrated life.
