"[...] il Nuovo Testamento riconosce l'autorità dell'Antico Testamento come rivelazione divina e non può essere compreso senza la sua stretta relazione con esso e con la tradizione ebraica che lo trasmetteva" (Pontificia Commissione Biblica, Il popolo ebraico e le sue Sacre Scritture nella Bibbia cristiana, 2001).

Vincenzo Pace, Digital Religions, Who Innovates What?

Public Conference | Italian  

From the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster to monastic websites, which offer physical and spiritual wellness, religions continuously innovate themselves and they offer paths of experimental believing and practice. The conference focuses on the reciprocal relation between religion and innovation, suggesting various examples of religions on line and (only) digital religions.

A few months before the fall of the Berlin Wall, Francis Fukuyama announced the “end of history”. The ideas of liberal democracy would take center stage: human rights would become a cornerstone of the international political order, as would capitalism. A real sense of close of history was spreading. But, as Robert Kaplan has pointed out, unfortunately this “was an era of illusions”. What we are now witnessing in many parts of the world (including in the West) is a return of identitarian politics and many challenges to liberal constitutionalism.

Piero Stefani, Lettera ai Galati

Seminar, open to the public | Italian 

The seminar is about two staples of St. Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians: that of identity and its relativization and non-symmetrical overcoming («in Christ there is neither Jew nor Greek »), and the problem of authority. What does it mean that Paul goes to Jerusalem to meet the three “pillars”: James (not one of the Twelve), Cephas and John to expound the gospel in order not to run in vain? In both cases, contemporary implications of the text will also be discussed.
