Throughout his pontificate, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI spoke to a range of political, civil, academic, and cultural authorities, revealing a striking sensitivity to the fundamental problems of law, justice, and democracy. Collectively, these addresses formulate a series of core ideas for a "public teaching" on the topic of justice and law.
Simoncini, a professor of constitutional law at the University of Florence, will be joined by fellow contributor Paolo Carozza (Notre Dame Law School). Presented by the Center for Ethics and Culture, the Kellogg Institute, the Program on Constitutional Structure, and the Program on Church, State & Society.
