About the Spe Salvi Institute

The Spe Salvi Institute is an independent non-profit whose mission is to communicate Christian hope and its practice in order to benefit people’s lives and society as a certain guide in modern times.


Founders Robert Mixa and Andrew Petiprin seek to highlight the importance of Christian Eschatology as it informs Christian culture throughout the world, but particularly in Europe. Drawing from Pope Benedict XVI’s Encyclical Spe Salvi (“Saved in Hope”), the Spe Salvi Institute sets out to help people renew their hope in Christ and come to see all reality in his light. Like St. Paul’s age, many people in our age are without hope because they are “without God in the world” (Eph. 2:12). Christian hope is the gift that they desperately need, and the Institute seeks to rediscover and appreciate the gift of new life offered in the redemption of Christ. Articles, podcasts, seminars, and events serve that end.
