MASSIMO CACCIARI, PIERO CODA

I am the Lord Thy God

Who is the God of biblical monotheism? Certainly not a God that "belongs" only to believers. Certainly not the absolute Being, outside of time and human history, to whom many refer when they want to deny or affirm His existence. He is the God of the Commandments: a dramatic God, who makes room for otherness and puts His own unity at risk, and also cultivates a constant relationship with humanity. He is the God who bursts on the scene of history with a gaze of Love and is a source of liberty and justice.

Massimo Cacciari teaches in the Faculty of Philosophy at the Vita-Salute San Raffaele University in Milan.

Piero Coda heads the Sophia di Loppiano University Institute in Florence, where he teaches Systematic Theology, and is the president of the Italian Theological Association.
