Nov 11/21 – The Benedict XVI Institute for Africa (BIA) has released a full schedule of their upcoming international conference on The African Perspective of Pope Benedict XVI’s Thought, beginning on Wednesday, November 27th, and concluding on Friday, November 29th.

This conference marks the ten year anniversary of Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to Africa, specifically, Cameroon and Angola, during which founder Fr. Agbaw-Ebai, DTh, received inspiration to begin forming the institute.

One timely talk, which will be given by Fr. Agbaw-Ebai, will expound upon Joseph Ratzinger’s thoughts on Inculturality vs. Inculturation.

Over the course of the conference, five panels will be held covering the following bodies of Pope Benedict’s work:

  • Panel 1: Benedict XVI – Contact with Africa
  • Panel 2: Theology/Canon Law
  • Panel 3: Philosophy
  • Panel 4: Law
  • Panel 5: Social Teaching

Proceedings from the panels as well as input from attendees will be compiled for publication.

The event will conclude with a word from Boston College.
