The Work and Inculturation of Chinese Jesuit Wu Li

By: You Guo Jiang, SJ

Matteo Ricci arrived in Macau in 1582 and Beijing in 1601, seeking to explain Christianity in terms that he thought would be acceptable to the Chinese. Ricci realized that for the Gospel to enter deeply into the life of China, it had to find points of contact with the local Confucian culture. Confucianism is not a religion. It is the collection of the teachings of Confucius and his disciples. Confucianism is a cluster of ethical ideals, intellectual views, and a...

A Poet Martyr – Robert Southwell (1561-1595)

By: Federico Lombardi, SJ

The time of the breakdown of Europe’s religious unity in the 16th and 17th centuries was a truly dramatic period. The depth of the divisions and the cruelty of the conflicts and executions still disturb us today when we return to them to better understand our history and to share in  sincere dialogue, lasting reconciliation and peace. One of the theaters of the drama was England, where from the time of Henry VIII the conflict developed not so much in...

1522: Martin Luther’s New Testament in German

By: Giancarlo Pani SJ

Five centuries ago, on September 21, 1522, Das Newe Testament Deuzsch,[1] Martin Luther’s New Testament in German was published in Wittenberg.

The volume acquired the name Septembertestament (September Testament), to distinguish it from the following...

Towards The Next Global Financial Crisis?

By: Gaël Giraud, SJ

Economists failed to predict global inflation. In most industrialized countries it has now reached eight percent on an annual basis and promises to be with us for the next few months, and perhaps even the next few years. To the extent that most Western societies chose, 40 years ago, to prioritize the fight against inflation over any other policy consideration, a large number of Western central banks now feel compelled to imitate the anti-inflationary monetary policy of the U.S. Federal...

‘Love Does Not Live By Words’

By: Giancarlo Pani SJ

Twenty-five years ago, on September 5, 1997, Mother Teresa of Calcutta ended her earthly pilgrimage. On October 2003 she was proclaimed blessed by John Paul II and in September 2016 she was canonized by Pope Francis.[1] During her life she received several awards, most notably in 1979, the prestigious Nobel Peace Prize. On her way back from Oslo, after receiving the award, Mother Teresa made a stop in Rome, where journalists crowded around to interview her. Among the questions, there...

2022: A Watershed Year For Kazakhstan?

By: Vladimir Pachkov, SJ

The tragic events of January 2022 once again revealed how the republics that emerged from the collapse of the USSR are still a long way from stability. Kazakhstan is not an exception, just one more example. There are, however, big differences in the way the ruling elites react to protests, ranging from attempts to consolidate power through repression to introducing some reforms, even if these can sometimes be a fig leaf masking a tight grip on power. The fact that...
