Partner institutions:

The members of BCL work together with the partner faculty at the Catholic University of Leuven, especially the Liturgical Institute. The Centre is set up from its very beginning in close cooperation with the Pontifical Liturgical Institute St Anselm (PIL) in Rome, which is one of the most important institutes for the study of Liturgy in the world and the hosting institution for studying liturgy in the Benedictine tradition. It also participates in the Institute for Ritual and Liturgical Studies (PThU).
