  • I always admired her intelligence and the gift that she had of handling delicate subjects in an elevating manner.

    Alice von Hildebrand (1923 - 2022)




    Alice Jourdain von Hildebrand was born in Belgium March 11, 1923.  A war refugee, she arrived in New York City in 1940. Soon afterwards she met Dietrich von Hildebrand and began philosophy studies at Fordham University as his student where she took nearly 18 courses with him. Later she became his secretary and collaborated with him in the writing of a number of his books. Starting in 1947, she began teaching at Hunter College in New York City. She was eventually appointed Professor of Philosophy at Hunter where for 37 years she was an extraordinarily successful teacher. Upon her retirement in 1984 she was given a special award for excellence in teaching by Hunter College after she received the highest student evaluation in the College (from among 850 teachers).
    Dr. von Hildebrand is the author of numerous books, including Introduction to a Philosophy of Religion, Greek Culture, By Love Refined, By Grief Refined, The Soul of a Lion, The Privilege of Being a Woman, Man and Woman: A Divine Invention, as well as numerous philosophical papers which have been published in such journals and magazines as The New Oxford Review, Homiletic and Pastoral Review, Crisis Magazine, and This Rock. She also writes frequently for the website of Catholic News Agency.
    Since her retirement she has been active in the Catholic world as a lecturer on countless topics and her journeys have taken her to South America, Canada, to thirty-five U.S. states, and to many European countries. In addition to her many years at Hunter College, she has also taught at several other institutions, including the Catechetical Institute in Dunwoody, NY, Franciscan University of Steubenville (where she served as a member of the board of trustees for many years), at the Thomas More Institute in Rome, at Ave Maria College in Michigan, and at the Notre Dame Institute in Arlington, VA (today called the Notre Dame Graduate School of Christendom College).



    Patience is a conquering virtue. The learned say that, if it not desert you, It vanquishes what force can never reach; Why answer back at every angry speech? No, learn forbearance or, I'll tell you what, You will be taught it, whether you will or not.
    -Geoffrey Chaucer

  • Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
