.- On November 27, the Angelicum Pontifical University of Rome will present a new edition of the encyclical against modernism by Pope St. Pius X, “Pascendi Dominici Gregis,” during an event promoted by the International Society of Thomas Aquinas.

The new edition of the encyclical that the Pope wrote against the influences of modernism in theology and Catholic thought is being published by Cantagalli with an updated Italian translation, making the hundred year-old document easier to read.

The new version also includes an introduction by Professor Roberto de Mattei of the European University of Rome explaining not only the historical context of the encyclical but also the relevancy of the document to the growing “dictatorship of relativism” denounced by Pope Benedict XVI. 

The new edition will be presented by Professor De Mattei and by Bishop Luigi Negri of San Marino-Montefeltro, who said a re-reading of the famous encyclical would be an excellent opportunity reflect on the responsibility of an evangelization capable of dialoging with the modern world.
