From Russia with…Terror

By: Marco Piaia, SJ

From Russia with... terror! This altered title encapsulates the main features of Shadow and Bone, a dark fantasy set culturally and scenically in the boundless expanses of Siberia. Unlike Game of Thrones (set essentially the early Middle Ages without Christianity) and Harry Potter (where the magical world is a sort of parallel to the Muggle one), in this series the orthodox Christian world and the culture of the Russian Empire at the beginning of the 19th century provide the background...

The Mysticism of Ignatius of Loyola

By: Brian O’Leary, SJ

A soldier saint or a mystic? Over the centuries since 1556, the year of his death, Ignatius has been interpreted through a variety of images. The leading image for most of this period was that of the soldier saint. This image drew partly on Ignatius’ family connection with the warlike minor aristocracy of the Basque country. Linked with this was his upbringing in the chivalric culture of the day that included training in the art of warfare. Then there was...

By: Teodor Lucian Lechintan, SJ

The 300th anniversary of Antoine Watteau’s death (July 18, 1721) passed almost unnoticed. The world of this artist, with its comic actors and theatrical performers, is best revealed by his atelier. The image of this place, handed down to us by a contemporary, is in some ways shocking. The painter “rarely cleaned his palette and often went several days without replenishing it. The vase of grease oil, of which he made so much use, was full of dirt and dust...

Law and Good Ecclesial Government: The Vademecum for cases of sexual abuse and the reform of canonical criminal law

By: Federico Lombardi, SJ

In the early months of 2020 I wrote an article about the protection of minors and vulnerable persons in the light of regulations that had been promulgated after the Meeting of Bishops and Superiors General convened by Pope Francis in February 2019. At the time I highlighted that these were very important steps forward, but that in order to respond to expectations two further actions were still awaited: the publication of a “Vademecum” for bishops and superiors and the promulgation...
