The Phoenix Institute Summer Seminar for the Study of Western Institutions

The Phoenix Institute Summer Seminars for the Study of Western Institutions at the University of Notre Dame (USA) and in Trumau-Vienna (Austria) are designed to foster a better understanding of the Western.


The Phoenix Institute understands itself as a meeting point for people who believe that the truth, beauty, and goodness that lies at the heart of the Western tradition can provide a useful foundation for the development of their communities. The Institute’s Summer Seminars for the Study of Western Institutions has been carefully designed as the ideal setting for the study of such tradition.

The seminars are opened to all the candidates that have completed at least one year of undergraduate studies. To have high academic qualifications, the seriousness of purpose, willingness to actively participate in an international environment, a firm sense of personal responsibility towards the good of others, a sincere interest in the Study of the Western culture, and willingness to contribute to the fulfillment of the Institute’s Mission, are the basic qualities that the Institute will be looking for among its prospective students.
