VATICAN CITY, 13 SEP 2011 (VIS) - During the Pope's forthcoming apostolic trip to Germany, the German publisher Herder and the Vatican Publishing House will organise an exhibition of the various language editions of the works of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, according to a communique made public today.

"The exhibition is unique of its kind", reads the communique. "It will first be set up at Castelgandolfo for the Holy Father himself, then at the Teutonic Cemetery inside the Vatican, and finally at Herder's head office in Freiburg, and will include some 600 volumes from more than twenty-five countries. For the first time it will be possible to see a Romanian edition of 'Salt of the Earth' alongside a Chinese version of 'God and the World', as well as the great monographs of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI".

The exhibition will open at the Teutonic Cemetery on 16 September and at Freiburg on 24 September where it will be presented during the course of a press conference organised for the papal visit.

  1. The works of Joseph Ratzinger should be placed on the Index of Forbidden Books because there are elements in his works that are contrary to the previous Magisterium of the Church or at least ambiguous and confusing.

  2. I think that the "Anonymous" Comment is completely inappropriate.


  3. Poor anonymous. I thought the Index of Forbidden Books doesn't exist anymore, thanks perhaps in part, to Pope Benedict himself?

    I am not a Catholic but I have greatly benefited from Pope Benedicts' works. Catholics are blessed to have such a fine pope, who is both a theologian extraordinaire and a man of prayer. Listen to him.
