Centre Sèvres

The Centre Sèvres is a university-level, Jesuit faculty of philosophy and theology on the Rue de Sèvres, in the heart of Paris, established in 1974 from the Jesuit schools of philosophy at Lyon-Fourvière and philosophy at Chantilly. It is no longer restricted to Jesuits but welcomes men and women, lay and religious.

Pursuant to the Apostolic Constitution of Pope John Paul II on Catholic Universities and Ecclesiastical Faculties (Sapientia Christiana) of April 15, 1979, and the ordinances of the Congregation for Catholic Education, the canonical statutes of the Center were approved by Rome on June 18, 1986. The licentiate, master's degree, and PhD are offered in both philosophy and theology. The school of philosophy includes special emphases on aesthetics, biomedical ethics, and public ethics and international perspectives, while hosting the Ricci Institute of Chinese Studies. The school of theology includes studies in ancient languages and patristic studies, religions and cultures, and spirituality and religious life.
