2009-12-16

Benedict XVI
“In his celebrated work, the Metalogicon, John teaches that authentic philosophy is by nature communicative: it bears fruit in a message of wisdom which serves the building up of society in truth and goodness.”

That’s why he calls laws in favor of abortion, euthanasia and genetic experimentation, unlawful.

Benedict XVI said that the works of John of Salisbury have not been lost because they explain the collaboration between faith and reason in order to seek the truth. A collaboration that the pope, as a university professor, says is fundamental.
