Migrant Songs

By: Claudio Zonta SJ

The theme of migration has been part of the Italian popular music scene since the beginning of the 20th century, for example in songs such as Nebbi’ a la valle (Mist in the Valley), a traditional lament from Abruzzo about olive pickers in the Maiella area. This ballad was later recorded with the title Cade l’olivo (The Olive Falls) by Giovanna Marini and Domenico Modugno, and  became more famous as the hit Amara terra mia (Bitter Land of Mine). The...

Pope Francis Speaks With Muslims: The trip to Iraq in context

By: Felix Körner, SJ

The significance, on a theological level, of Pope Francis’ trip to Iraq in March 2021 emerges clearly only when placed in the larger theological, historical and chronological context. First of all, bear in mind that the pope comes from the continent with the lowest percentage of Muslims, although Jorge Bergoglio’s homeland, Argentina, is the Latin American country where the largest portion of the Muslim population lives: about 400,000 people belong to Islam. That is a considerably larger number than, say,...

The TV Series ‘BeTipul’ Healing Trauma

By: Marc Rastoin, SJ

In 2005, a series called BeTipul (In Therapy) appeared on Israeli cable tv. It has since been sold and adapted in many countries.

It is currently being telecast in France. The technical setup is extremely simple, almost elementary:...

Cosmopolitics: Global common goods and new international institutions

By: Gaël Giraud, SJ

One indisputable lesson of the Covid-19 pandemic is that the only sensible response to such a phenomenon must be cooperative and universal. As long as there is even one country where the virus can multiply and mutate – no matter which country it is – it will keep coming back. We will be facing a pandemic that will recur over time, just like the flu. We will need new vaccines, perhaps every year, depending on how quickly the virus mutates....

Osvaldo Pol: The Poetic Word has Dwellings of Flesh

By: Jorge Mario Bergoglio, SJ

Jesuit Father Osvaldo Pol, lifetime student and now professor, wrote almost all of these sonnets here in his home. Some have already been published, others appear for the first time. The Faculties of Philosophy and Theology are pleased to launch his book of sonnets. In poetic language he expresses theological wisdom, the fruit most appreciated by the Society of Jesus in its academic endeavors. It may seem paradoxical that a poet speaks of exiles from the earth in the language...

Siberia: One country, many peoples

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

If Russia is a country of extremes, Siberia is so to a greater extent. In Europe, Siberia is a byword for the freezing cold, but not everyone knows that much of Siberia is tropically hot in the summer. Siberia is a part of the world rich in fossil fuels, which, while helping to keep the global economy alive, also greatly contributes to pollution and climate change. At the same time, Siberia’s woodlands, along with its tropical forests, are the lungs...
