Tra labirinti e biblioteche - Cur Deus Homo di Anselmo d'Aosta

Tra labirinti e biblioteche - Cur Deus Homo di Anselmo d'Aosta

Paul Gilbert S.J.

The Cur Deus Homo is a book that still stings to it the believing narrative. Its author, Anselm of Aosta, was born in 1033 near Aosta, was later a monk and abbot of the Benedictine monastery of Le Bec, and finally Archbishop of Canterbury, England. 

Among the most brilliant minds of his time, he dedicated the last years of his life to the question: "Why a God-man?". In His infinite imagination and omnipotence, could He not choose another way to return us fully to salvation? Above all, was it really so necessary to die in that way, as vicarious atonement?

Will introduce the book Paul Gilbert, one of the most appreciated professors of philosophy in our Faculty, emeritus today.
