CF2019-3 Culture e Fede Vol. XXVIII N.3

Volume N. 3 XXVII 2019 of the review of the Dicastery focuses on ecological matters.

An examination of the human duty to care for creation opens this volume, which explores a number of ethical imperatives that feature in the papal encyclical Laudato Si’ on care for the common home. Some of the philosophical traditions behind an integral ecology and a human-centered ecology are then developed together with an overview of current scientific challenges.

A young prophetic voice blasts society’s destructive mentality, and a businesswoman offers thoughts on renewable energy. A piece on the Pontifical Villas also offers some curious insights.

Other sections of the review present the activities of the Courtyard of the Gentiles and the Sports, Humanities and Digital Cultures departments. There are details too from our Science department on the Holy See’s attendance at the Beijing Garden Expo.

There is also a fascinating note on ecological issues by one of our new members, Cardinal Baltazar Porras Cardozo, who reflects on the Amazon Synod.
