  • 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).
