This is the third conference in the Angelicum’s “Communitas” series, where, in response to the call of Pope Francis (see Veritatis Gaudium, n. 4c), the different faculties of the university come together to debate a key topic of our day across the disciplinary divide. For more about the previous conferences in the series, see Communitas 2018: “The Common Good or the Throw-Away Society”, and Communitas 2021: “Preaching and the Arts”. The 2022 edition of the Communitas conference will be focused on the theme “Biblical Law and Natural Law”.
