Cultures and Faith Vol. XXV N.2 Theme: Pre-Columbian Cultures
Vol. XXV 2017 N.2 of the Dicastery's journal is now out with a focus on "Pre-Columbian Cultures".
It offers insights into the importance of considering diverse cultures and languages. The study focuses on the perduring effects of the pre-Columbian period of Latin America. The journal visits various moments in Latin American history that exemplify how the evangelical message was spread taking into account linguistic cultural exchange. The mentalities and languages discussed include those of the Inca and other the indigenous people.
Language serves as a primary means of transmitting culture. Bilingualism allows us to coexist with various cultural communities united in a historical context. It is important to consider the terminology used in a language and its meanings when spreading religion and the faith.
