Karol Wojtyła was a member of the philosophical milieu of Cracow since the beginning of his academic carrier. After 1954, when the Faculty of Theology was removed from the Jagiellonian University, he became involved in maintaining and developing the intellectual life and traditions of Cracow. He initiated a number of research projects in the 1960s and 1970s, and he also promoted the development and integration of the academic community of Cracow within the former Faculty of Theology of the Jagiellonian University, which then became an independent and autonomous research and didactic unit. The result of this multifaceted activity was, among others, the decision of the Congregation for Catholic Education in 1976 to establish the Pontifical Faculty of Philosophy in Cracow, sealed, in 1981, with the motu proprio Beata Hedvigis. In this article, I focus on the various forms of Karol Wojtyła’s activity which resulted in a dynamic development of Christian philosophy in Cracow and contributed to the establishment of the Institute of Philosophy at the Pontifical Faculty of Theology which later evolved into the Faculty of Philosophy at the Pontifical Academy of Theology in Cracow, the academic institution known today as the Pontifical University of John Paul II.
