Why support our work?
We are unique in not having a partisan agenda, but in promoting knowledge in depth of the religions. Our aim is to integrate the two complementary approaches of credo ut intelligam (“I believe in order to understand”) and intelligo ut credam (“I understand in order to believe”), and we are convinced with Xenophon, that “when God is our teacher, we come to think alike.”

We are rigorous in our defence of true traditional teachings, as we are rigorous in the standard of our scrutiny of their doctrines; this is why our library is valued as authentic and authoritative within its field.

We take religions seriously, and we take seriously the challenge of our times to traditional wisdom. We offer answers to change ourselves with the hopes thereby of one day changing the world —there is nothing as practical as a good theory— by empowering people of faith and scholarship.


We depend on donations to pursue our objectives, and as of late 2017 we are in real need of funds to continue our activities, which are very regular and low-cost. Being a registered charity (No. 284155), our donors are entitled to tax relief on their donations throughout the EU. Do contact us via email if you are interested in sponsoring our work.

As registered members of the Fundraising Regulator, the transparency of our accounts is guaranteed. Donors can rest assured that their donations will only be used to fulfil the public benefit objectives of the Trust. Our acceptance of donations is subject to the standards laid out in the Code of Fundraising Practice.
