(21/3/2017) The volume Cooperatores Veritatis. Scritti in onore del Papa emerito Benedetto XVI per il 90° compleanno, edited by Pierluca Azzaro and father Federico Lombardi and published by the Vatican Publishing House, will be held on April, 6th at 5,30 p.m. at the Augustinian Patristic Institute of Rome (via Paolo VI, 25).
After the greetings of father Giuseppe Caruso, head of the Augustinian Institute and father Giuseppe Costa, director of LEV, the meeting will follow with the presentation made by Father Lombardi, president of the Joseph Ratzinger – Benedict XVI Vatican Foundation and the report of cardinal Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for promoting Christian Unity and member of the Scientific Committee of the Foundation, whose title is “Una sinfonia di amore e verità nella libertà. Joseph Ratzinger/Benedetto XVI testimone grato della fede pasquale” (A symphony of love and truth in freedom. Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, witness of Easter faith).
In order to celebrate the 90 years of the Emeritus Pope, the 13 scholars who had received Ratzinger Prize since 2011 offered their contribution – in a lot of languages and topics – and took part in this collective work.
The celebration volume – a proper “Festschrift” according to the German academic terminology – “is an original way to gather an international group of important scholars, who shared their views on Ratzinger’s thought” father Lombardi wrote in the introduction to the work.
The authors of the essays are: the Ambrosian priest Msgr. Inos Biffi, the French philosopher Rémi Brague, the Anglican biblicist Richard Burridge, the Polish theologian Msgr. Waldemar Chrostowski, the American Jesuit Brian E. Daley, the Brazilian Jesuit Mario De França Miranda, the Spanish theologian Olegario González de Cardedal, the Cistercian abbot of Heiligenkreuz in Austria Maximilian Heim, the Lebanese scholar Nabil el-Khoury, the Greek theologian Ioannis Kourempeles, the French theologian Anne-Marie Pelletier, the German theologian Christian Schaller, editor of the Opera Omnia of Joseph Ratzinger – Benedict XVI, the Italian Manlio Simonetti, popular expert of Patristics.
