Advisory Council

The Legacy Project is greatly honored by the involvement of each person who has graciously agreed to serve on the Advisory Council.

The principle for selecting members for this Council was to invite individuals who exemplify one or another of the many sides of von Hildebrand's personality - philosopher, theologian, great Christian witness, heroic political activist, and Renaissance man.

Yet beyond this, the the Advisory Council is not just a celebrity list but a group of individuals with real relationships to von Hildebrand. Of special importance, the Council includes nine former students of von Hildebrand.
