By: Marc Rastoin, SJ

Within a century, the detective novel, a genre initially considered minor, has become a literary genre of great cultural and social importance.

By: Étienne Grieu SJ

Is charity a “theological place”? By “theological place” we mean one of the “different areas where theological knowledge unfolds, or the different sources from which it draws: Scripture, Tradition, the Fathers, the magisterium, the liturgy,”[1] according to the definition given by theologian Melchior Cano in the 16th century.[2] If it is a matter of systematically ordering the discourse about God, then charity has little chance of being considered a “theological place.” Indeed, it is an experience with uncertain boundaries, with...

Recently, NASA decided to re-establish a human presence on the Moon with the Artemis program for the first time since the Apollo 17 moon mission ended in 1972.
