About the Lecture
Dr. Massimo Faggioli's lecture will try and offer an assessment of Pope Francis’ pontificate at ten years from his election on March 13, 2013. Among the topics addressed by the lecture: Francis’ ressourcement of Vatican II against traditionalism and fundamentalism; the relationship between the Church and the world, between internal issues and global challenges; the handling of the abuse crisis; the turn to a “synodal Church”. The presentation will offer a few insights on the historical and theological meaning of Pope Francis’ pontificate.
