Benedict XVI “has enlightened the Church and the world admirably with his magisterium . . . he has highlighted how faith and reason, far from being opposed to each other, can cooperate together for a greater knowledge of God and a deeper understanding of man” (Bishop Javier Echevarría, Prelate of Opus Dei, Pastoral letter, 1 March 2013).

We have put together in this eBook some of the most important interventions of Benedict XVI in the area of faith and reason, including an address from 2005, when he was Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
