Pontifical Biblical Commission to hold plenary assembly in April
(Vatican Radio) The Pontifical Biblical Commission is set to hold its annual plenary Assembly on 24-28 April 2017.
A communique released by the Holy See Press Office said the plenary Assembly will be held at the Casa Santa Marta in the Vatican.
The meeting takes place under the presidency of Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
Fr. Pietro Bovati, SJ, the Commission’s Secretary General, will direct the Assembly’s proceedings.
The communique said the Commission Members will reflect on several themes related to biblical anthropology.
The mission of the Pontifical Biblical Commission, as stated in its statutes, is to "effectively promote study of the bible among Catholics, contrast erroneous opinions related to Sacred Scripture with scientific means, and study and illuminate debated questions and emerging issues in the biblical field".
