Dr. von Hildebrand has garnered even wider attention as a regular face of the Eternal World Television Network, which exclusively airs Catholic-themed programming across the country. She made some 80 appearances, often as a guest on the wildly popular Mother Marie Angeliquewho founded the network and hosted a talk show.

Such was the intensity of her fan base that when she became too frail to take trips abroad, wealthy admirers would send in their private jets to pick her up.

“She had this great energy,” Mark Gottlieb, an Orthodox rabbi who serves on the Hildebrand Project board, said in a phone interview. “It was a deep soul grace and power to simply resonate outward and engage you with his words and ideas and the sheer force of his personality.”

Alice Marie Jourdain was born in Brussels on March 11, 1923 to Henri and Marthe (van der Horst) Jourdain. Her father, who owned a small business, was a deeply religious man, attending mass daily, a practice that left a deep impression on young Alice.

After the German invasion, she and her sister were sent to New York to live with a wealthy aunt and uncle at the Waldorf Astoria. Alice entered Manhattanville College but later transferred to Fordham, where she met her future husband.

Dietrich von Hildebrand was himself a refugee. As a professor at the University of Munich, he had observed and strongly opposed the rise of the Nazis in that city in the 1920s. When Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933, Dr von Hildebrand became fled to Vienna, where he founded an anti-Nazi newspaper. When Germany retook Austria, he fled again, first to France and Spain before coming to New York.

Mme Jourdain became his student and assistant and obtained his doctorate in philosophy in 1949.

She is survived by a sister, Marie Laure Gillis.
