This Saturday, the pope will personally award the Ratzinger Prize of Theology during a ceremony in the Vatican.

Although Benedict XVI will not attend, the laureates will visit him tomorrow.

The first winner of this edition is the Canadian philosopher Charles Taylor, an expert in secularization and the relationships between religion and modernity.

The other prizewinner is theologist Paul Béré, from Burkina Faso. He founded the first Jesuit School of Theology in Africa, and established the first African theology magazine.

The Ratzinger Prize is the highest award given in the field of theology.

It has been awarded to 20 people since 2011, Catholics and non-Catholics among recipients.
