.- The first collection of all of Karol Wojtila’s essays was launched at the Holy See Press Office yesterday. The 1,600-page book includes all of the essays he wrote between 1948 – when he got his licentiate in theology at the Angelicum in Rome – and 1978 – the year of his election to the pontificate. 

The book is titled Metafisica della persona. Tutte le opere filosofiche e saggi integrativi di Karol Wotyla (Metaphysics of the person. All the philosophical and integrative essays of Karol Wojtyla). It is published by Bompiani.

The collection includes: “The doctrine of the faith in St. John of the Cross” (1948); “Evaluations on the possibility of building up the Christian ethic on the foundations of the system of Max Scheler” (1954); “Love and Responsibility” (1960); “Person and act” (1969) and “Man and responsibility” (1978). Ten essays written between 1974 and 1978 are also included.
