Catholic World News - March 15, 2012

The University of Regensburg has published The People and the House of God in Doctrine of the Church, a doctoral thesis on the work of St. Augustine that was presented in 1953 by the young Father Joseph Ratzinger.

The volume is part of a 16-volume series in which the university is collecting the written works produced by Joseph Ratzinger prior to his 2005 election to the papacy. The book was formally introduced on March 15 at the German embassy to the Holy See by Bishop Gerhard Ludwig Muller of Regensburg.
