What is the Legacy Project?
   Dietrich von Hildebrand
   Late in Life, ca. 1975/6
The Dietrich von Hildebrand Legacy Project (Legacy Project) was founded by John Henry Crosby in 2004 to promote the thought and spirit of Dietrich von Hildebrand by preserving his memory and disseminating his writings, especially in the English-speaking world.

 

Some of the great churchmen of the twentieth century have held von Hildebrand in high regard. One frequently sees the quote of Pope Pius XII, who called von Hildebrand a "twentieth century Doctor of the Church," but equally impressive are the words of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who wrote of von Hildebrand:

"I am personally convinced that, when, at some time in the future, the intellectual history of the Catholic Church in the twentieth century is written, the name of Dietrich von Hildebrand will be most prominent among the figures of our time."

Despite these words of high praise, von Hildebrand has sadly come to be largely forgotten. The Legacy Project wishes to remedy this situation.
