(Vatican Radio) On April 23rd 1616 the playwright William Shakespeare died on his birthday leaving behind him a wealth of works that are performed and recited 400 years on.The celebrations are in full swing commemorating the life and talent of the man known as the Bard who wrote plays such as As you like it, Twelfth Night and the Tempest.Recently in the Vatican London’s Globe Theatre performed the play Hamlet and there has even been a Shakespearean map of the London Underground unveiled to mark the anniversary.But just what is it that makes William Shakespeare’s plays so popular? Lydia O’Kane put that question to Professor John Gillies of the University of Essex.Listen to the full interview with Professor Gillies “…Shakespeare has always had this popular cultural reputation, popular cultural impact simply through theatre.”Professor Gillies was in Rome recently to participate in an international conference marking the 400th anniversary of Willia...
(Vatican Radio) The President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, Cardinal Peter Turkson, told the United Nations to realize the 2030 Development Agenda, we are called “to care”, even when dealing with finance. The Vatican official was on Thursday speaking at a High-Level Thematic Debate on Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in New York.“Ethically irresponsible financial activity produces social inequalities,” – Cardinal Turkson said – “By caring, we are inspired to practice responsible finance and promote value-based investing  in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.”Cardinal Turkson called “our conflict-ridden world” the greatest challenge to the realization of the 2030 Agenda.“For war is the negation of all rights and all development,” he said.“Thus good governance and all the political instruments for the maintenance of peace and security for all are indispensable fo...

Rome, Italy, Apr 23, 2016 / 04:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- April 23 marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, the playwright, poet, and actor widely considered to be the most influential literary figure in the English language.Yet, there's one mystery which continues to elude scholars to even this day: what exactly was Shakespeare's relationship with the Catholic Church? And, could he have been a secret Catholic, forced to conceal his true religious identity in an era of persecution?At the time of Shakespeare's writing, Britain was in a period of religious upheaval. Its people were still caught in the crossfires of the English Reformation that had begun decades earlier when Henry VIII declared himself head of the Church of England. Shakespeare, like many of his contemporaries, outwardly followed the State-imposed religion, since it was illegal at that time to practice as a Catholic in England. However, scholars say he nonetheless maintained strong symp...

One year after the Burundi crisis began, almost 260,000 people have fled to nearby countries and thousands more are expected to do the same over the rest of the year unless a political solution is found and a descent into civil war averted. This is according to a press brief by UNHCR spokesperson, Leo Dobbs held Friday at the Palais des Nations in Geneva.“People continue to arrive in neighbouring countries, albeit in smaller numbers in recent weeks as it becomes harder to cross borders. Many asylum seekers or new arrivals report human rights abuses in Burundi, including torture, sexual violence, arbitrary detention, intimidation, forced recruitment by militia, killings and extortion. To date, 259,132 people have fled the country. UNHCR expects the figure to rise to 330,000 by year's end,” the spokesperson said.Leo Dobbs said continuing international support was needed to help ease the tension and encourage an inclusive dialogue.“With mass returns not currentl...
