RIP Prof. Alice Von Hildebrand

I just learned that Prof. Alice Von Hildebrand, the Catholic philosopher and speaker and the second wife of the great Prof. Dietrich Von Hildebrand (who is one of my intellectual touchstones) has passed away at the age of 98.

I actually had no idea she was still alive: I would have sworn that I’d heard she’d died several years ago, before I even became aware of her and her late husband. In honor of her, I offer her lecture on Reverence (sorry for the poor audio quality).

Also recommend you pick up her and her husband’s works.

Requiem aeternam dona ei, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei.
Requiescat in pace. Amen.
Anima eius et animae omnium fidelium defunctorum per Dei misericordiam requiescant in pace. Amen.
