MCE RESEARCH CENTRE

mce_brand_4The Markets, Culture and Ethics Research Centre (MCE) of the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross was founded in 2009 with the aim of studying in a systematic and scientific way the ethical aspects (social and individual) of economic and social life, in the light of reason and the Catholic faith. At the same time, it has an ecumenical and interreligious approach since social problems can only be resolved by a joint effort and in dialogue with contemporary culture. MCE’s academic activities are open to scholars and economic practitioners in all areas as they provide necessary elements for a true dialogue of faith with the world. MCE does not align itself with any particular school of economic thought, and it is open to all schools of thought as long as they are compatible with Christian anthropology, as expressed in the encyclicals, Centesimus Annus and Caritas in Veritate.

The Pontifical University of the Holy Cross was born from the desire of St. Josemaría Escrivá, Founder of Opus Dei, to create a center of higher ecclesiastical studies in Rome at the service of the whole Church. With prayer and patient work, he laid the foundations of the current University of the Holy Cross.

St. Josemaria’s first successor, Blessed Álvaro del Portillo, with the support of St. John Paul II, brought that desire to completion, inaugurating the Roman Academic Center with a Holy Mass dedicated to the Holy Spirit on October 15th, 1984. Thanks to the assistance of the University of Navarre’s ecclesiastical Schools, the institution was destined to become a center of study and research, committed to the task of theological, philosophical, and canonical formation.
