The Hildebrand Project takes a major step forward with the launch of an ambitious new publishing initiative — the Hildebrand Press. 

New Release:

 

The Encyclical Humane Vitae: A Sign of Contradiction was written mere months after the promulgation of Pope Paul VI's eponymous encyclical. Today it is recognized as one of the earliest, faithful defenses of the Catholic Church's teachings on marriage and birth control. 

 

 

 

Available Now: 

 

  The Art of Livingis Dietrich von Hildebrand's essential guide to the moral life. Co-authored with Alice von Hildebrand, with a new foreword by Peter Kreeft

 

 

 

 

 

 In Defense of Purity, Hildebrand's classic work on love, marriage, virginity, and sexuality, with a new foreword by Alice von Hildebrand, and newly translated preface by Leo Cardinal Scheffczyk

 

 

 

 


Aesthetics: Volume I, with a new foreword from Dana Gioia. Our long-awaited English translation of Hildebrand’s magnum opus on art and beauty, in which he defends the reality and necessity of beauty against its detractors. 

 

 

 



Liturgy and Personality, with a new foreword from Bishop Robert Barron. One of Hildebrand’s most beloved books, in which he explores the personality-shaping power of liturgy, and the vocation of every person to holiness.

 

 

 

 


The Press means many things for the Project’s future. For one, we now have the capacity to accelerate the publication of Dietrich von Hildebrand’s works, including many never before translated into English.

The Press also means we will be able to give voice to other thinkers, including contemporary figures, working in the spirit of Hildebrand’s quest for the true, the good, and the beautiful.
