What is the nature of reality? What makes a just society? From Augustine to Dante, from Paul to John Henry Newman, we aim to bring the riches of the Catholic intellectual tradition into students’ lives. Founded in 1997, the Lumen Christi Institute engages the entire University of Chicago campus in Christian thought and culture. Check out our non-credit courses, reading groups, colloquia discussions, lectures, summer seminars, and more. All religious backgrounds are welcome; all concentrations will find something to like. If you care about theology, history, literature, political theory, economics—if you want to understand your chosen course of study in the broader perspective of knowledge—the Lumen Christi Institute is for you.
