Von Hügel Institute

for Critical Catholic Inquiry

The VHI Core Team is comprised of a Director, an Executive Officer, an Academic Officer, and a Research and Editorial Manager, along with occasional student helpers and interns.  At the heart of our research community are our Research Associates and Affiliate Members who join the VHI from across the disciplines and professions, and from across the globe. 

The VHI is an integral part of St Edmund's College. It also has its own external Advisory Board and distinguished Patrons, who offer advice on its research and other activities. 

We regularly welcome Visiting Scholars to spend time in Cambridge to carry out their research and collaborate with our team. We also welcome Graduate Students from the University of Cambridge and beyond to join specific projects and initiatives.





A unique institute of advanced studies inspired by Catholic thought and culture, focussed on contemporary global realities, and dedicated to encounter, dialogue, and transformation
