Von Hügel Institute

for Critical Catholic Inquiry

This is a most exciting time to get involved with the VHI: 

  • a transformative intellectual vision with deep roots and far-reaching potential is taking shape at the heart of one of the world’s oldest and most influential universities;
  • unique in Cambridge and unique in Europe, the VHI is a research institute for the third millennium inspired by Catholic thought and culture;
  • through partnerships with institutions in America, Australia and Europe, the VHI is an agent of analysis, imagination and transformation at the service of contemporary society. 

Join us and invest in our vision:

  • Come to our events, become a friend of the VHI, give us feedback, challenge us to improve;
  • Invest in our vision by funding our conferences and workshops, endowing our permanent and visiting positions, financing one or more rooms in our new state-of-the-art building. 

We want our vision to inspire you! We’ll be delighted to talk with you further. Please get in touch with us:
