Publications: BookProceedings


The papacy of Pope Francis has lead to great changes in the catholic church that have an impact on European and global discourses. In his apostolic writing exhortation »Evangelii Gaudium«, Pope Francis presents his vision of a new social order.
In the light of contemporary global challenges (migration, urbanisation, loss of tradition, ecological catastrophes, social and economic changes and theological processes of theological reorientation), this edited volume raises the question if and to what extent Pope Francis' programmatic text can introduce new paths for church and society in the present age.
