René Girard on a new Christian Renaissance

René Girard, a member of the French acedemy and a part-time matador, has predicted a new Christian cultural revolution that will make the Renaissance “seem like nothing”.

In a book published recently in Italian, Verite o fede debole. Dialogo su cristianesimo e relativismo (“Truth or Weak Faith: Dialogue on Christianity and Relativism”), Professor Girard writes that “we will live in a world that will seem and be as Christian as today it seems scientific”, Zenit reports.

“I believe we are on the eve of a revolution in our culture that will go beyond any expectation, and that the world is heading toward a change in respect of which the Renaissance will seem like nothing,” Girard says, who was elected in 2005 as one of the 40 “immortals” of the French Academy.
