The Pope's Visit to Iraq: An Historic Juncture
From March 5 to 8, 2021, Pope Francis made an historic visit to Iraq, including meetings with a range of political and religious leaders. The trip served multiple purposes, including demonstrating solidarity with a beleaguered Christian community, advancing dialogue with the Muslim world, and supporting efforts to promote peace and reconciliation in the Middle East. The COVID-19 pandemic compounded existing religious and political sensitivities surrounding the trip.

Join Fr. Antonio Spadaro, S.J., the editor-in-chief of La Civiltà Cattolica who accompanied Pope Francis to Iraq, Riccardo Cristiano, Italian journalist and Vatican expert, and Shaun Casey, director of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs, for a conversation about the pope’s trip and its religious and political significance.

This event is sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University and La Civiltà Cattolica (Rome) in partnership with Georgetown's Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life and Georgetown Representative Office in Rome.

Mar 15, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
