Vatican newspaper highlights work of French scholar Hadjadj

Catholic World News - July 02, 2010

In the July 2 edition of L’Osservatore Romano, frequent contributor Lucetta Scaraffia highlighted the work of French philosopher and literature professor Fabrice Hadjadj, the author most recently of La foi des demons [The Faith of Demons].

Satan’s pride and envy, says Hadjadj, make him the “manager of self-sufficiency and the father of utopia” apart from the God’s plan for creation-- an attitude that Haddjadj finds in Malthus as well as Marx, an attitude that “despises human freedom as well as divine freedom” and “ignores the reality of concupiscence and of grace.”

Born in 1971, the Tunisian-born Haddjadj converted from Judaism in 1998.
