Cardinals Amato, Koch and Ravasi at the Symposium of the Foundation


(27/9/16) There are three cardinals who will speak at the International Symposium "Eschatology: analysis and perspectives" that will be held on 24th - 26th November at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross: Angelo Amato, prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints and president of the Scientific Committee of the Foundation, Kurt Koch, president of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, members of the Scientific Committee. Eschatology is one of the privileged topics in the theological research of Joseph Ratzinger and the next meeting in November will be the 6th International Symposium of high scientific value organized by the Joseph Ratzinger – Benedict XVI Vatican Foundation after the meetings in Bydgoszcz, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, Medellin and Madrid.

More than to contemplate eschatology in the faith of the Church, the main aim of the Symposium is to host two workshops: one will be on the main issues of current eschatology, the other on the prospects of eschatology in Judaism. Professors Paul O’Callaghan, Thomas Söding, Bernardo Estrada, Romano Penna, Maurizio Marcheselli, Moshe Idel, Giovanni Ancona, Riccardo Battocchio, Santiago Del Cura Elena and Robert Wozniak will attend the Symposium. The head rabbi of Rome Riccardo Di Segni and the head rabbi of Genoa Giuseppe Momigliano will be guest speakers.
