The Carmelite Institute Malta, founded on 4 October 2008, started as a collaborative effort of the Maltese Carmelite Province and of the Maltese Province of Discalced Carmelites to promote in Malta the study of Carmelite spirituality and tradition. Currently, it is run solely by the Maltese Carmelite Province.
Its main goal is to offer courses in Carmelite Spirituality, Mariology and the study of Mysticism on various levels. The Institute cooperates with the Faculty of Theology of the University of Malta to offer an MA programme in Spirituality and Spiritual Companionship. Students enrolled in this programme may opt to specialize in Carmelite Spirituality.
The Carmelite Institute Malta has its seat at the Carmelite Priory, Villegaignon Street, Mdina, Malta.
