New Religiosity in Italy

By: Giovanni Cucci, SJ

End of religion? For a long time the mantra of the “abolition of religion” (to borrow from the title of Richard Schröder’s provocative essay) has resounded insistently in the West. Philosophers, sociologists, psychologists, scientists and writers have competed to predict its end. The most famous change  that characterizes this line of thought is  the withdrawal of those of  religious commitment and the progressive diminishing  of the sacred dimension in the affairs of the world.

Dialogue needs to learn interreligious complexities

By: Paolo Pegoraro

Interreligious dialogue needs to understand the cultural interweaving of religions in different contexts, says Ambrogio Bongiovanni, the director of the Pontifical Gregorian University’s Center for Interreligious Studies.

Prof Bongiovanni lived some 25 years in South Asia, much of that in India, doing research and...

Pius XII, John XXIII and Russia

Pius XII and the Soviet...

Candida, Other Women and Jesuits in 17th-century China

By: Federico Lombardi, SJ

Many have heard about the Jesuit missionaries in China in the 16th-18th centuries. The most famous was Matteo Ricci, who has gone down in history as the initiator of the encounter between Chinese and Western culture and – as far as the Church is concerned – as a model of inculturation, of the proclamation of the Gospel to China and, more generally, to peoples of cultures very different from that of Europe. Ricci was only the first in a long...
