Berlin discussion of God and freedom is next ‘Courtyard of the Gentiles’ initiative

Catholic World News - October 15, 2013

Appearing at a Vatican press conference, Archbishop Robert Zollitsch, president of the German Bishops’ Conference, discussed the next initiative of the Courtyard of the Gentiles, a forum for dialogue between Catholics and nonbelievers begun at the suggestion of Pope Benedict XVI.

The Courtyard’s next initiative, devoted to God and freedom, will take place in Berlin from November 26 to 28.

Archbishop Zollitsch, who retired as Archbishop of Freiburg im Breisgau in September, said that the program in Berlin will include discussions with the following titles: “When there is no God, everything is permitted”; “Behold the man! God the Creator’s creature, or the designer of himself?”; and “Religion on the stage: about awe, blasphemy, and artistic freedom.”

“The questions of the court of the people in Berlin are elementary and fundamental: What is man? How do ethics and faith in God as well as art and religion relate to each other?” the prelate said.
