.- The Italian publishing house Rizzoli announced Wednesday that John Paul II’s newest book, Memory and Identity; Conversations Between Millenniums is set to go on sale throughout Italy on February 23rd. Memory and Identity, the Pope’s last book since Crossing the Threshold of Hope, released over a decade ago, centers around conversations he had with friends, Krzysztof Michalski, a political philosopher, and the late Rev. Jozef Tishner at his Castel Gondolfo summer residence in 1993.

The three discuss the state of Europe over the last 100 years as they try to uncover the roots of such evils as fascism, communism and Nazism. The book also delves into issues of Church and State as well as the 1981 assassination attempt on the Holy Father.

Although prior to his becoming pope, John Paul II published numerous philosophical, poetic and dramatic works, Memory and Identity will be the second book published during his pontificate.

It is expected that Rizzoli International will make the new book available to readers in the United States in English soon after its Italian release.
