The Court of the Gentiles is making a stop in Stockholm, Sweden. On September 13th and 14th, Sweden's Embassy to the Holy See will host two discussions under the theme “The World With or Without God.”
It's a project based on creating a respectful dialogue between believers and non believers.
The Court of the Gentiles name was given to this initiative, since centuries ago, both Jews and non-Jews were allowed to visit the courtyard of this Jewish temple to socialize and have healthy discussions. For the past few years, the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Culture, has giving the term a new modern day twist.
The initiative is led by the council's president, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, who under the direction of the Pope, agreed to the project.
Conferences, seminars and other events have taken place throughout Europe, including Bologna, Paris and Barcelona.
