The Görres Society (German: Görres-Gesellschaft) is a German learned society, whose goal is to foster interdisciplinarity and apply scientific principles to different disciplines, based in the Catholic tradition. The Gorres society is divided into 20 sections, in which members meet at the annual general meeting


The Görres Society was founded on 25 January 1876 in Koblenz by Catholic scientists and writers as the Görres-Gesellschaft zur Pflege der katholischen Wissenschaften in honour of Joseph Görres to advance Roman Catholic studies.[1] Co-founder, initiator and first president was Georg von Hertling, the later Reichskanzler of Germany.

It was dissolved by the Nazis in 1941, and founded anew in 1948 in Cologne.
