The Albertus Institute is an initiative based in Edinburgh, Scotland which aims to contribute to the contemporary discussion between religion, the sciences and other intellectual disciplines. The Institute encourages public debate in this area by sharing the Christian, and in particular the Catholic, view in an open and welcoming way and by listening to other points of view in the same spirit.

The Albertus Institute provides a platform for this debate through public lectures, seminars and conferences. As the work of the Institute develops, our website will provide access to various resources such as lecture materials, podcasts, discussion points and more.
