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 text did not bear the name of the translator, the printer, or even the year of publication. Some 3,000 copies were published and met with extraordinary success. It was quickly sold out, so a second edition - entirely revised - was published in December. 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...

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...

The Economic Consequences of Putin’s War

By: Fernando de la Iglesia Viguiristi SJ

This article addresses the issues related to the sanctions that the United States, along with the European Union, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, Japan and a few other countries have imposed on Russia in retaliation for its invasion of Ukraine. We will highlight how the decision taken by Vladimir Putin risks plunging Russia into isolationism and into a cycle of impoverishment that could cause it to revert to the miserable levels it was at 30 years ago with the end...
