We are pleased to announce that the library of the Augustinian Historical Institute opened its doors to the public again on the 27th of July 2020. 

Safety measures will need to be strictly followed in the library:

  • A face mask is mandatory (this will not be provided by the institute so don’t forget to bring your own). 
  • Hand sanitizer will be made available and must be used. 
  • Within the library the social distancing rule of 1,5 m needs to be maintained.

Welcome to the website of the Augustinian Historical Institute (‘Augustijns Historisch Instituut’), located in Belgium. In our Institute we focus on St. Augustine, his spirituality, his works and influence on the world history, etc. Similar attention is given to the history of the Order of Augustine (OSA). At the same time, we try to make the acquired knowledge known as much as possible.
