Hans Kung in meeting with Pope Benedict

 On Saturday,  a meeting took place Pope Benedict XVI and the famous theologian from Tubingen, Hans Kung, in which they discussed "issues related to global ethics and the dialogue between science and faith".

The director of the Vatican press, Joaquin Navarro-Valls, said in a statement: "The meeting took place in an amicable climate. Both agreed that there was no sense, in the context of the meeting, to enter into a dispute about doctrinal matters persisting between Hans Kung and the leader of the Catholic Church". Navarro-Valls said: "The Pope appreciated the effort by Professor Kung to contribute to a renewed recognition of the essential moral values of humanity throughout the dialogue of religion and the meeting with secular reason".
