Press Release of the Pontifical Council for Culture: International Conference “Dante and the Great Eschatological Questions" (25-26 November 2021, 22.11.2021

As part of the celebrations of the 700th anniversary of the death of Dante Alighieri, the Pontifical Council for Culture, in collaboration with the Università degli Studi Roma Tre, the Pontifical Dante Commission, the Foundation for the Cultural and Artistic Heritage and Activities of the Church and the Giancarlo Pallavicini Foundation, is organizing an international conference entitled “Dante and the Great Eschatological Questions”.

The event is divided into three sessions aimed at illuminating three major themes present in the centuries-old tradition in which Alighieri’s work is rooted: the divinely inspired vision, the resurrection of souls and bodies at the end of time, and angelology.

The conference will be attended by scholars from all over the world, known to the scientific community for the high quality of their research, who are interested in various fields of knowledge, in particular: philosophy, theology, exegesis, history, art history, linguistics and philology.

The Conference, which will be enriched with the recitation of excerpts from the Divine Comedy by the Compagnia del Teatro Libero di Rebibbia, will be held on 25 and 26 November 2021, at the Università degli Studi Roma Tre, in via Ostiense 236. To participate, you can enrol by writing to:
