Notas breves sobre a política no pontificado de Bento XVI

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



What is the specifically political meaning of Benedict XVI’s pontificate? Throughout his life, this Pope has offered a number of deep reflections on political issues broadly understood. His originality seems to reside in his concern with the role of Catholics as Catholics in Western countries where religion in general, and Catholicism in particular, is in retreat. In the second part of this short essay I explore the work of John of Salisbury, which was recommended by the Pope himself, and try to make certain parallels between the political thought of both.
