Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, biblical scholar passionate about culture and dialogue

In 2007, Benedict XVI tasked him with leading the meditations for the Way of the Cross on Good Friday. That same year, the Pope named him president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, and subsequently bishop and cardinal. He launched the Court of Gentiles, a forum to initiate dialogue between believers and non-believers, in several cities across the world.

CARD. GIANFRANCO RAVASI

President, Pontifical Council for Culture

“The Court of Gentiles is truly one of the liveliest realities that our Dicastery pushes forward, with the support of Benedict XVI.”

Ravasi introduced to the press the latest book by Benedict XVI about the infancy of Jesus, and the Pope also tasked him with leading the spiritual exercises for him and the Roman Curia. His talks were based on the Book of Psalms.
