Analogia e scienza nei discorsi di Paolo VI


Although Paul VI was not a scientist in the ordinary sense of that term, he paid a lot of attention to the main questions pertaining to science and technology. In his view, scientific research represents a way to discover God, as the Creator reveals Himself through the order and beauty of the universe. This paper deals with some contents of his speeches, in which the Pope drew inspiration from the Biblical principle of analogy to highlight the close link between natural investigation and Christian faith.
