Catechism translated into Persian

Catholic World News - May 30, 2014

The Catechism of the Catholic Church has been translated into Persian, with the help of Shi’ite Muslim scholars, the AsiaNews service reports.

Translators from the University of Religions and Denominations in Qom, Iraq, translated the Catechism. The translation has been reviewed by Catholic officials, and will soon be published with an introduction written by Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, the president of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue.
