Why Pontifex University?
"Pontifex University offers formation in the 'way of beauty' for the whole person,
giving students an intellectual, spiritual, and human sense of God's revelation to the world through beauty."
His Excellency Bishop James D. Conley, Diocese of Lincoln
Pontifex University's online education program provides students with the chance to learn from the best teachers from around the world. Each student can work at their own pace while still being able to connect with a community of students and professors who share the Catholic faith. In addition to our online courses we also offer in-residence programs in the United States, the Holy Land, and Italy as well as workshops with accomplished artists.
Our partnerships with Hexaemeron and the Bethlehem Icon Centre provide our students with a hands-on approach to iconography, as well as our additional International Programs in Italy.
