Vračanje

Gianni Vattimo

Misliti, da verujem (*) Je mogoče biti kristjan kljub Cerkvi?VračanjeDolga leta svojega življenja sem vstajal zgodaj; zato da sem šel k maši pred šolo, pred delom, pred univerzitetnimi predavanji.

Nike Kocijančič Pokorn

University of Ljubljana(Article from the symposium organized by International Institute Jacques Maritain, Trieste, in frame of Forum Orient-Occident in May 2004 in Rozzaco, Italy)In this paper an attempt will be made to show that rigid delimitations between the Eastern and Western thought are flawed and that Christian spirituality in the West has always appreciated and venerated the great Eastern spiritual tradition.
