Acton Institute

The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty is an ecumenical think-tank dedicated to the study of free-market economics informed by religious faith and moral absolutes. The Acton Institute is named after the great English historian, Lord John Acton (1834-1902). He is best known for his famous remark: "Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." Inspired by his work on the relation between liberty and morality, the Acton Institute seeks to articulate a vision of society that is both free and virtuous, the end of which is human flourishing. To clarify this relationship, the Institute holds seminars and publishes various books, monographs, periodicals, and articles. For more information, visit www.acton.org.
