Pope Benedict XVI and the Middle East North Africa region

19/02/2013 5:25 pm

The Holy Father and Chief Rabbi Sacks

In this Middle East Analysis podcast, we've departed from our regional analysis of MENA to react to the news of Pope Benedict XVI's decision to resign on 28 February 2013.

Our consultant on the region, the international lawyer and analyst Dr Harry Hagopian, gives his personal take on the Holy Father and his impact on the Middle East North Africa region.

Dr Hagopian looks at:

  • Pope Benedict's dialogue with the Jews, Muslims and Christians of the region
  • His Apostolic Journeys to the Holy Land and Lebanon
  • The Bishops' Synod on the Middle East and the document Ecclesia in Medio Oriente
